Topic: Communication Skills for Engineers

"I have a great engineer but he (or she) just can't talk to people!" In more than thirty years of consulting, I have heard this over and over again from my clients. I have coached many engineers, helping them to communicate more effectively with peers, customers, direct reports, and senior managers. This webinar will provide specific strategies, approaches, and techniques to help you strengthen your communication skills. What role do perceptions play in communicating? How can you use questions to enhance your communications? Why are non-verbal skills so important? What are the elements of effective listening? What are the key things to remember about e-mail? The webinar will focus on these and other important communication questions. Communication is the foundation for everything that happens in the workplace. Attending this webinar will help you be the best communicator you can be!

Topic: Mechanical Insulation: Forgotten Energy Saving Opportunity

Mechanical Insulation is an important part of the mechanical system. It is the only thing that lasts forever and if properly maintained functions forever, paying for itself over and over again. However, over time and rife with misconceptions, opportunities to save energy involving mechanical insulation are overlooked. facilities spend tons of money to buy new equipment and upgrade to energy efficient components but are unaware of the huge opportunity right under their noses to save energy.
