Since being able to communicate with clients, especially during the initial proposal presentation is vital to securing work for the civil engineer, a dynamic communication technique for civil engineers is necessary. The usual presentation, utilizing drawings and charts, is sometimes only adequate to convey all the necessary information within the time allotted for the presentation.
