Program Description

Good business writing grabs your readers’ attention ... it commands involvement, enhances understanding and inspires action. Simply put, good business writing gets results.

While the objective of every business-writing project is simple, many professionals flounder when they put words to paper. That’s usually because they’ve bought into ideas about writing that just aren’t true. For instance, do you ever find yourself thinking ... “Good writing is a talent you have or you don’t, and I’m a ‘have not.’ ” “Writing is a laborious, frustrating process.” “Good business writing adheres to strict grammar and composition rules, and I’m not interested in nor do I have time to memorize a bunch of rules.”

When you attend this workshop, we’ll show you how to avoid all of the dread and most of the drudgery in your business writing.
