This seminar is for engineers and geoscientists who wish to develop the confidence and writing skills necessary to write effective proposals and reports. Through a series of hands-on workshops, you'll learn the key elements of writing and submitting winning proposals and reports, and how to tailor your content for both technical and non-technical audiences. In addition, you'll learn to determine what your clients (internal and external) are looking for, and how they will evaluate your proposal or review your report.

Seminar Description
