Get to the Point! A Practical Writing Course for Technical Professionals

Written Communication

Don't waste your audience's time: Be clear, concise, complete and confident in your communications.

Most techincal 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. 

We have delivered this course for nearly 50 years and offer simple yet practical techniques, designed for technical people.

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.

Excellent. I recommend this to anyone in the technical fields whose work entails any written communications.
