Overview

Being able to communicate effectively is one of the most useful skills an engineer can have.

This event will provide guidance on how to communicate well within a series of industry-specific themes or contexts.

Although open to everyone, this event may be particularly useful to those preparing for their Professional Review at CEng level.

The purpose of the event is to stimulate discussion on current issues within the industry. It may enable attendees to become more confident in writing arguments logically and clearly within a given scenario and a response format.

This session will focus particularly on the the future of civil engineering.

The format of the session will typically consist of:

  • Welcome and introductions (5 min) – the session will start with a welcome and introduction, chaired by a regional ICE Early Careers Network volunteer.
  • Introduction to themes (10 min) – an outline of what the Communications Task involves.
  • Introduction to themes (10 min) – an industry guest speaker will provide a brief overview of the themes to be tackled as part of the session, potential response formats and audiences of the communication format.
  • Breakout group discussion (20 min) – attendees will be split into breakout rooms to discuss the themes of the session, response formats and potential audiences of the communication format.
  • Group feedback (10 min) – breakout groups will return to the Microsoft Teams call main room for wider feedback and discussion until the close of the session.
  • Closing Comments (5 min) – the chair of the session will provide some closing comments.

This will be held online via Microsoft Teams. Joining details and speaker information will be sent to the email address you have registered with, a few days prior to the event.

Please note: you’re not required to attend all sessions but will need to register for the individual topics you wish to attend.

The event is hosted by ICE Early Careers Network Committees from the North West and Midlands regions.
