This interactive training introduces participants to the Pyramid Method of Writing and applies it to writing effective emails, letters, short and long reports, and proposals. The content will be delivered over Zoom in six sessions, which allows time between sessions for participants to practice the new techniques.

Participants will receive personal feedback on three writing assignments. The extended sessions provide time to discuss and evaluate longer more technical documents such as recommendations, investigations, formal reports and studies, and proposals. Group exercises allow participants to learn from each other.
