Are years of bad writing habits undercutting your competitive edge?

You’re not alone. Engineers have the, largely unfair, reputation of being notoriously weak in basic communications skills like writing and public speaking. Bad habits and lack of confidence are the usual culprits underscoring less-than-stellar writing and presentation skills.

Break this cycle of poor communication and join speaker Ken Tichacek as he identifies common errors and presents useful rules-of thumb to help you avoid mistakes that undercut your ability to communicate clearly and effectively.

In the spirit of "Engineering Communications Skills 101" Ken will also give you:

  • A helpful refresher on essential writing fundamentals 
  • Focused instruction on how to write what engineers have to write - particularly proposals, e-mails, texting, and technical documents
  • Identify common mistakes many engineers make in their written communications and how you can avoid making those mistakes

Effective business writing isn’t about being clever. It’s about being understood. This webinar will show you how to do just that - please join us!
