Technical Communication programs are specifically designed for engineers, scientists, accountants, and others whose complex subject matter can contribute to communication difficulties.

Technical presenters usually need to organize heaps of information, often they have limited experience with public speaking or writing. Their inexperience developing and delivering briefings often leads to failure to deliver their message and achieve the purpose of their presentation. During the program, we’ll focus on such topics as managing stress, the verbal and nonverbal aspects of delivery, how to manage a Q&A session, and how to practice effectively.

Audience evaluation skills are a key component of this workshop. Understanding why your audience is attending, assessing their interest level and knowledge of your subject, and clearly defining the action plan you desire your audience to follow after hearing your presentation are addressed.
