SPEECHES

How to Navigate New Media: One year ago, Mignon Fogarty created a weekly podcast to tackle some of the most common mistakes people make while communicating. The podcasts have now been downloaded more than seven million times and was voted iTunes "Best Educational Podcast of 2008." As a new media entrepreneur, she addresses the changing and often confounding world of online media, and how it affects our lives.

Grammar Rules and Word-Choice Guidelines: Fogarty discusses the mistakes that can confound even the best writers. From “between vs. among” and “although vs. while” to comma splices and misplaced modifiers, Mignon offers memory tricks and clear explanations that will help readers recall and apply those troublesome grammar rules; from hour long keynotes to full-day trainings, Mignon can help your group become better communicators.
