Your Details

This intensive one day training course provides the foundations for effective technical writing in a business environment. 

Watch Ferrovial Agroman's graduate engineers as they share their thoughts about the training

The basics of communication are discussed at the outset with the emphasis on using plain English.  This is followed by discussing the general structure of reports outlined to ensure clear dissemination of written information. Specific report styles are covered in detail, from management and sales reports to project reports and business case preparation. The development of clear, concise and unambiguous instructions, procedures and manuals are detailed.

The course demonstrates the value and methods of good writing by using lots of examples, contrasting good and bad, to indicate which writing styles work and which don't - and why.

Stanley Daniels

Stanley is a highly experienced tutor delivering specialist engineering training across a wide variety of industries, ranging from utilities, oil and gas, railways, automobile and local government. He strives to stimulate original thinking in all his courses, aiming to make you better at your job by encouraging you to innovate.

Stanley started his career as an apprentice at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell in Berkshire and gained an honours degree in Electronic Engineering at South Bank University London. He moved to Ferranti at Bracknell,  where he designed digital computers for naval weapons systems to be placed on board ships of the Royal Navy. He was involved in the introduction of the first integrated circuits into these computers and helped pioneer such techniques as multilayered pc boards.

In the late 1960’s he joined the Concorde project in its early stages at Bristol. While in the development team he organised and optimised the main 3000 channel Flight Test Recording System and the Accident Recorder system. Later he was involved in the marketing of advanced systems. Work on spacecraft systems included a spell with Rockwell during the tendering and proposal writing phase of the Space Shuttle programme.

He worked in the USA in Chicago where he put into production a commercial vending game machine. Novel techniques, new technology and low site maintenance were key features of this exciting venture.

Returning to the UK he set up two automotive design and prototyping factories in the Midlands, one being specifically to implement CAD and CAM techniques for vehicle design and development. Using his proposals, these companies secured strategic new customers in the UK and Europe.

Stanley has 25 years' experience as an ICE Training tutor. He has delivered specialist engineering training to organisations in a variety of industries, ranging from electricity supply, oil and gas, railways, automobile to local government. Many of his training modules contain original thoughts and fresh insights into complicated issues.
