Event Description

What are key elements of an effectively written document? What should I focus on in my letters, bids, proposals, work plans, reports, and documentation?

 

Potential clients often judge you based on whether you can clearly articulate the services you provide. Clients may skim your documents, so you need to ensure that your content is organized and that your key points stand out. Your writing ability is important.

 

This seminar is focused on helping you to do exactly that: to write more effectively. You’ll learn to tailor your writing for your audience and purpose. You’ll apply the strategies required for effective emails, reports, and proposals. In addition, you’ll also incorporate key principles for editing and revising your documents.

 

We’ll cover multiple topics, including:

1. Planning your scope documents

2. Writing concisely

3. Crafting effective emails and letters

4. Responding to bids and proposals

5. Structuring your reports and project documentation

 

Instructor: Eric Tung is Business Communications Instructor at SFU’s Beedie School of Business, and an English Instructor at UBC’s Extended Learning, where he teaches business and technical writing courses.

 

In addition to teaching, as a Principal Consultant at Prolepsis Consulting, Eric designs and delivers customized business, proposal, and technical writing workshops to various organizations, including construction, engineering, and consulting firms.
