TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'd probably do something similar and talk about the absolute necessity of
clearly written, well laid out documents.
A metaphor I've used in front of general audiences to show what technical
writing achieves is that of someone speaking with a hand over their mouth.
Technical writers/communicators don't change what the speaker is saying -
they just remove the hand so that listener doesn't have to work so hard to
hear what's being said.
