Fluor Corporation recently invited John Sturtevant back to the company’s Greenville, South Carolina campus to lead another two-day Clear Writing Workshop for a group of high-level Project Managers and Engineers.

The two-day, hands-on session is designed to give technical professionals new concepts and techniques that make it faster and easier to plan, write, revise, and edit the complex documents they write as part of the design, build, and maintenance processes. The participants are working on extensive projects to rebuild infrastructure in Afghanistan, a new Nuclear Power Plant in Texas, and a number of coal-fired power plants around the United States.

And the commitment these technical professional made paid off. Kevin Hamm, Project Engineer said, “This writing workshop is a great learning experience. In two days I have significantly developed my writing technique. I now know how to get my point across in a clear, precise way.”

“John did a fantastic job teaching this course,” said Process Engineer Thomas Travis. “His concepts force me to reevaluate the way I write and focus on my purpose. I will definitely make sure I sound like a human when I communicate!”

“Every employee in our U.S. Army Logistics Civil Augmentation Program should be required to take this workshop,” added Dan Kyser, who works in LOGCAP Project Control.

“I learned specific ideas about how to organize my writing,” said Jane Vaughn, Technical Writer. “John’s ideas about context, relevance, and meaning are priceless. I’m going to change my writing process tomorrow morning. Thank you!”

“Out of the box thinking!” said Phil Watson, Marketing Lead. “John gave us a unique perspective on writing to our audience.”
