The need for skilled report writing and presentation skills has increased in the last 20 years. Institutions increasingly seek training for their staff, however, effective writing skills are not only necessary for professionals and alike; these skills are critical in any technically-oriented professional job. Effective communications—or writing—is not writing about a specific technical topic, but about any technical topic. This means the clarity or clear message should reach the subordinate using the presentation of the report.
Effective communication expected to express ourselves, both verbally and non-verbally, in ways that are appropriate to our cultures and situations. This means not only being able to express our opinions and desires, but also our needs and fears and to ask for advice and help. One of the challenges in writing skills is to do so in a way that a non-specialist could understand.
“No matter how good or important message is, if it is not delivered in interesting and effective way, chances are it wont be heard at all. Strong presentation skills can advance a career while pour speaking skills can ground a rising star”.
