Wednesday, May 15th Workshop
"Impactful Writing - How to Achieve It  PLUS What you say & how you say it makes a difference"  Presented by William Nesbitt & Arty Trost

Impactful Writing - How to Achieve It  by William Nesbitt - The presentation defines the characteristics of impactful writing and the qualities necessary to achieve it. The focus is on writing that encourages and often requires personal expression—to motivate or change attitudes, as well as to educate/inform; to appeal to a range of audiences, not just technical peers; and to express strong opinion and present clear conclusions. It includes examples of ‘good’ and ‘poorly written’ material and exercises to demonstrate how to sharpen writing and editing skills.

PLUS What you say & how you say it makes a difference by Arty Trost - The foundation of influence is the validity and soundness of the content or idea itself.  Your skills and experience as a Professional Engineer give you the tools to make substantive contributions.  Too often, however, even the best ideas and recommendations may fall on deaf ears if the interpersonal dimension of influence is overlooked.  This portion of the workshop will provide you with specific techniques for defining the issues, clarifying your sphere of influence, framing your recommendations, and building your credibility.
