Writing for Success

  • Classroom

There is more to business writing than just emails and memos. This course will help supervisors, technically based employees, and those who struggle with the communication facets of their work projects, to become better writers. This half day program was designed for busy people who do not want or need to go through Grammar and English Composition 101 to improve their writing. By providing specific skills, strategies, tools, and techniques, this entertaining seminar can also take the discomfort out of complex, technical, or lengthy business writing projects. Learn to take meeting minutes more effectively, recap the results accurately, and provide quality recap reports for the stakeholders.
