Succinct Plain Language Writing
Organizations greatly benefit from having a professional cadre who can produce clear, well-organized, grammatically correct documents of the work they perform. Today’s professionals are expected to communicate technically, and technical writing plays a vital role in how one’s work is presented to key customers and the research community as a whole. Skills obtained from this technical writing course will help participants to communicate with others inside and outside of the organization through reports, instructions, procedures, e-mails, letters, abstracts, case studies, etc.
Whether we want to or not, most of us must write. We write to explain things, to smooth relationships, to convince others of the value of some course of action. Such writing must be clear concise, complete, and correct. It must also convey our message in a courteous tone. It has been said that we spend 40% or more of our working day reading, writing, and sending emails. While email is easy and fast, when misused it results in lost productivity, miscommunication, and frustration. This workshop gives participants the tips, tools, and techniques to manage the volume of emails they receive each day. Participants will learn the etiquette of sending courteous and respectful emails. As well, you learn to quickly draft emails that are clear and readable.
Getting Results with Clear Writing & Dynamic Presentations
Elevate’s 3 day program focuses on improving both oral and written communication for people who write e-mails, reports, memos, business letters, meeting minutes, and who give presentations to influence and persuade. We take a fun approach to grammar review, and all three days are packed with activities, skill practice, and practical application so that participants can use what they learn immediately back on the job. Each day can be presented as a stand alone session.
