•  contributing new ideas and solutions
•  making presentations
•  managing an engineering team
•  writing different types of documents including reports

In the current fast pace and changing technological world, engineers who lead or work in the engineering and technology organisation can just rely in providing technical information or solutions, but more importantly engineers need to develop the persuasion and influential skills to ensure that their ideas being taken and executed.
