LavaCon 2018 was a blast! We were a Sapphire Sponsor for 2018 and it was our best LavaCon ever. On October 21 to 24, the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel, New Orleans, LA was filled with engaging and fun activities. Barry led two breakout sessions and a three-hour workshop, and we sponsored events throughout the four-day conference.

Barry SaiffBarry showcases his new book, Outsourcing Technical Writing: A Primer, at Mag's 940 bar.

The 2018 Year End Party: Saiff Solutions in Barrywood!

In 2018, we delivered 33 different types of training to our staff. We are on track to deliver 60 different types of training in 2019.

One highlight: We’ve launched a new training program called WRAMPS. Our staff will focus on developing their talents in these areas:

Writing

Reading

Arts

Math

Practice

Speaking

Of course, the underlying focus on many of the activities is our favorite language, English! The key to improvement is Practice – each employee will practice these skills regularly throughout the year.

It has been an amazing year and we are eternally grateful to our customers, partners, and supporters. You are all part of our success! Here’s to an even more amazing 2019!
