Get to the Point: A Practical Writing Course for Technical Professionals (in-person delivery)

Most technical professionals avoided writing classes but now find that to succeed, they must be able to put their ideas and information in writing. Emails, reports, proposals, recommendations, and business cases are still the most effective way we deliver information. How you communicate is what will differentiate you and your organization from your competition. 

In Get to the Point! A Practical Writing Course for Technical Professionals you will learn techniques that apply to writing technical letters, reports, emails, proposals and recommendations.

This comprehensive agenda introduces participants to the Pyramid Method of WritingTM and applies it to several writing situations.  Participants will also receive personal feedback on at least three writing assignments and experience group and individual exercises.

Course Objectives – at the end the participant will be able to:

identify the necessary information and focus readers' attention on it,
understand the purpose of writing (informative or persuasive),
write clear, concise, and complete documents for different audiences,
develop a confident, easy to understand writing style, and
determine the best tool to consistently achieve the intended impact
