Write Less, Say More: The Power of Brevity

On Thursday, January 22, join Danny Rubin, vice president of Rubin Communications Group, as he leads us in a workshop on the importance of writing with brevity.

Danny will conduct a hands-on seminar in which you shorten, tighten and sharpen a piece of your own writing. It's a valuable, fast-paced hour you won't want to miss!

 Note: Please bring a written document between 300-600 words to the lunch. It can be a press release, announcement, long email or other work-related document. You can edit on an iPad, laptop or with good ol' pen and paper. 

 Rubin is vice president of Rubin Communications Group (RCG), a full-service marketing and PR firm in Virginia Beach. At RCG,

Danny works with a range of clients to make their voices heard in traditional and digital media. He also writes the blog News To Live By (newstoliveby.net), which shows millennials the career and leadership lessons "hidden" in the day's top stories. 

Danny's work on communications has been featured in the New York Times and The Huffington Post. He's also the author of “25 Things Every Young Professional Should Know by Age 25," available on Amazon.

 is a volunteer service and social organization with membership open to anyone in the Hampton Roads advertising community.

Since its founding as the Norfolk Ad Club in 1939, members from area advertisers, advertising agencies, media outlets and businesses have donated time and services to help raise money for the betterment of the up and coming creative talent.
