Business Communication – Writing With Power (June 6)
Business Communication: Writing With Power will take place June 6 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
To attract the attention of today’s busy readers, you must respond to their need for clarity and brevity in written communication. Learn to overcome “writer’s block,” and to recognize and avoid common mistakes to deliver information powerfully, persuasively, and professionally.
You will learn to:
Construct sentences that get and hold your readers’ attention
Edit your writing for clarity and ease of reading
Determine when to avoid archaic expressions and common grammar, punctuation, and usage errors
Structure sentences that put more impact into your communication
Integrate sound writing techniques to create more powerful letters and e-mails
You will benefit by:
Updating and improving your business writing skills for more effective and persuasive letters, reports, and e-mails
Organizing your documents with your readers’ needs in mind
Creating reader-friendly layouts to highlight important information
Overcoming obstacles that cause “writers block”
Anyone who handles correspondence, develops publications, prepares reports, and needs to be able to write quickly under pressure.
Each participant should bring a current project to get one-on-one feedback on their business writing skills.
