Carla helped us improve the paper much beyond just the language. Even though it was a technical paper, she pointed out several places where the reasoning (or at least the write up) was less than clear, with suggestions how to improve these. She was insisting that we made clear each section and each paragraph what we were actually trying to say. (I still try to ask myself these questions when writing nowadays). The result was a much better structured and clearer paper.”
The trainees become better communicators by writing succinctly and explaining issues in an orderly manner, starting with the most important down to least important. Carla has the participants bring actual examples of their writing and shows them immediately how to improve their presentations.
The typical responses from the participants are that this workshop is one of the best and most valuable classes they have ever taken.”
