Importance of Professional Writing Skills
Writing skills are an important part of communication. Good writing skills allow you to communicate your message with clarity and ease to a far larger audience than through face-to-face or telephone conversations. You might be called upon to write a report on anything, plan or strategy at work; write a grant application and/or write an Annual Report for your NGO or Company. It could be said that poor writing skills create poor first impressions and many readers/employers will have an immediate negative reaction if they spot a poor write-up with spelling or grammatical mistake. This session will deal with the importance of Professional Writing Skills.

Technical Writing Tips for Every Writer
Technical writing takes high-level details and explains them clearly and concisely to an audience. While the result of technical writing is clear, succinct and simple, the process can be the opposite. The technical writers’ challenge is to transform complicated information into an accessible document. To meet this challenge, technical writers use different strategies. This session will provide with a selection these distinct, action-oriented strategies to improve your technical writing.

8 Ways to Avoid Negative Sentences
We all know that the obvious double negatives (e.g., not + nobody, no one, never, etc.) are grammatically incorrect. You might be surprised, however, by how we often inadvertently use other types of multiple negative words in a sentence. Doing so truly confuses everyone and makes readers work harder to grasp your message. This session will deal with the ways of avoiding negative sentences.

Grammar We Need to Improve for our everyday Professional Writing

While grammar is not as static a science as is typically assumed, there are 20 rules of subject verb agreement that attempt to objectify part of the English language form. Most of the concepts of subject verb agreement are straightforward, yet some aspects of singular and plural usage in English grammar are more complicated. At the same time, we need to mention that we tend to resort to passive voice, while doing professional writing, which was left with us by the Brits (Britain) many years back, while they have switched on to active English many years back. This session would deal with all these matters to improve our report writing skills by making it much more effective.

Participants in this session would be involved in some practical exercises depending on the theories/clues given in the previous session.
