The rules you got taught about “good writing” may well be getting in the way of effective, professional communication and documents. That’s always been true in business, and COVID-19 has driven this home for every sector and industry.

This workshop will cover:

  • Why “It’s always been done this way” just doesn’t cut it, and why we just keep doing it that way.

  • The psychology of reader behaviour – how to be reader-centric.

  • It’s not about you – to get your desired outcomes, you have to write like a reader.

  • How to write reports and emails that are fit for purpose.

 Tuesday, 15 Mar 

 16:00 – 18:30 

 Wellington (Venue TBC) 

$90

+ GST

(not included in conference registration)

A workshop in three parts

 

  1. Tree root function and architecture

  2. Soils, compaction and excavation techniques

  3. Tree rules and the role of the works arborist

 

The workshop deals with the critical elements of being an effective works arborist. Over three hours, we’ll explore the basics of root anatomy, root architecture, root function and biology, some basic soil science and we’ll look at the RMA, resource consents and how they shape what we do when we protect trees during construction. We’ll introduce some current science and see how that ties into best practice and introduce a range of practical tools to go with the theoretical knowledge so that attendees have the skills they need to protect trees on construction sites.
