Nickel Asia recently conducted a Technical Writing workshop, conducted by TalkShop CEO Sheila Viesca, for its administrative staff.
Elcie Cialana, Nickel Asia Human Resource Manager said, “It is encouraging to see the improvements, most notably in emails and reports churned out that show brevity and clarity. Beyond writing and editing, there’s a new level of confidence in the workplace, as participants have been made aware of common errors, superfluities and redundancies in business communication.”
Voltaire Mungcal, Nickel Asia’s Buyer likes the new-found confidence as he deals with suppliers. “What helped me most is the grammar review. In particular, I have usually felt confused with prepositions. It does not help any that in Filipino we have only the words ‘sa’ and ‘ng’ which are the counterparts of several English prepositions. The TalkShop workshop remedied that.”
Adding value to TalkShop workshops is the hardbound, copyrighted compendium designed in alignment with the communication styles and formats of the company being trained. “Other course materials are thrown away after some time, but TalkShop’s compendium is so relevant and practical to use. I have mine in my office for easy reference for all my writing tasks,” adds Mungcal.
TalkShop which specializes in communication workshops is affiliated with the US-based International English Education Research Association (IEERA).
