Bass, Colonel, USAF (Ret), authored the multiple award-winning book https://www.amazon.com/Write-Influence-Appraisals-Scholarships-Internships/dp/0997593024/ref=sr_1_3?crid=EOOBCPR26J5Z&keywords=write+to+influence%21&qid=1643216274&s=books&sprefix=write+to+influence+%2Cstripbooks%2C53&sr=1-3 (Write to Influence!) now in its second edition. Writing powerfully was central to her success. Throughout her 45-year career (30 in the Air Force and 15 with a federal agency), she composed products for Congress, the White House, generals, and ambassadors; hundreds of performance reviews; awards nomination; and budget justifications. As a squadron commander, Carla transformed her 480-person unit from the most losing in state-wide, professional awards into the one to beat. How? She developed her writing methodology and taught her troops to write. So successful was her program, she taught thousands of Air Force members for the next 15 years. She now gives highly acclaimed presentations to government agencies; corporations; private businesses; NGOs; and academic audiences. From tips to frame a winning argument to crafting powerful resumes, grant submissions, input to performance reviews, and essays for college applications … she covers it all!   Her battle cries are twofold:1) “Powerful writing changes lives” and 2) “Powerful writing is the lifeblood of effective organizations” Carla’s assignments include: Germany; Bulgaria (as the defense and air attaché); Turkey; Korea; and Washington, D.C. For more info, see http://www.writetoinfluence.net/ (www.WriteToInfluence.net).
