About this Training Course

Technical professionals increasingly need to translate complex findings, analysis, and recommendations for effective decision-making. Those who face challenges in getting their findings into paper and communicating it to stakeholders, will benefit from attending this training course.

This updated course covers both traditional writing and presentation techniques as well as how to incorporate generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools to enhance both efficiency and quality in writing and presenting. Participants will learn how to plan, structure, write and deliver presentations, create effective prompts for AI tools, critique AI-generated content, and edit and proofread their work, ultimately gaining the knowledge and confidence to produce high-quality documents and presentations.

This separately bookable training course will demonstrate how technical professionals can use their technical knowledge and logical edge to write in a reader-friendly style, produce grammatically accurate reports and persuasively communicate for buy-in purposes.

Learn what past participants have said about EnergyEdge training courses

Overall, it was a very educational experience. I initially thought 3 days were a bit extensive considering the topic however time flows when you are having a good time learning. Kudos to the trainer for getting us enraptured throughout the process.

Engineer, Mechanical, Cameron Solutions

As a non-technical writer, I still found this course incredibly useful. Within my department, I provide charts and various visual displays for reports but do not have much experience writing the actual reports. The information I've learned in this course will definitely make me more of an asset for my team.
