IEM Shout Out – 2017-02 One-Day Course on “Effective Email Writing”

February 2, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day  course on the 16th February, 2017. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Danaraj Chandrasegaran

CEmail is a problem that is hiding in plain sight – one which few people will tackle. We all use email every day. Yet, too often, email fails to be the effective communication tool it deserves to be. Simple mistakes are often a large part of the problem. Emails are more likely than other kinds of work to be littered with spelling and grammar errors. More fundamentally, poor structure can result in overlong emails that fail to get their key message across. And poorly worded emails can lead to disputes between colleagues or with clients, causing disrupted workflows and needless stress.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Used correctly, email gets ideas across quickly and with a minimum of effort. Rather than a barrier to action, it can be the opposite: an invaluable tool for making sure that everything your team need to happen, happens. That’s why we’ve developed this course. It’s specifically designed to help your team claw back the time lost to poorly written emails. The end result is clear, professional emails, that let your team hit ‘send’ with confidence.

This one-day course is designed to help you develop skills that will enable you to produce clear and effective email documents. We will focus on the basic principles of good writing which email writing shares with other forms of writing and on types of documents common in technical fields and organizations. Participants learn the protocol for email writing. Subjects include punctuation, grammar and “SCRAP” techniques.  Participants also may choose to bring a sample of their writing/ presentation/ commonly faced issues in the work place for one-on-one feedback
