The future is here — the future is clear

The future’s so bright I gotta wear shades.

For those of us whose philosophical outlook was formed by a 1980s pop song, it’s time to take off the dark glasses and step into the light.

Clearly visible to modern communicators is the need to connect with people of all ages, from different backgrounds, and with different points of view. And plain language makes all the difference.

A golden opportunity to see and hear from clarity experts, who are focused on today and tomorrow, is here in Wellington from 3–5 November. Clarity2016, an international plain language conference, is being held in New Zealand for the first time.

Eighty speakers from around the world are bringing their energy and expertise, and shining a light on clarity in business, government, and the law.
