Words matter. As a writer, I have always known this. But now I advise clients on how their words make a difference. As much as I respect the power of language, I have also learned that compelling visuals are just as important—as is laying the groundwork for communication. We have to engage our audiences, respect their concerns, and build our communications around these conversations.
