This 16-hour business writing training course prepares participants to compose “routine” emails, letters, memos, and to edit those of their supervisors. Additionally, business writing course participants learn to select appropriate formats for letters, memos, and longer documents, including the most effective use of headings, lists, charts, and graphs. Finally, the business writing workshop focuses on skills in editing for conciseness, clarity, style, and grammar.
Business writing training participants will receive the text E-Writing: 21st-Century Tools for Effective Communication by (Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books). Job-aid cards are also included. They will spend approximately half the business writing workshop time on practice exercises, using both consultant-provided exercises and their own samples.
Secretaries, administrative assistants, and others whose time is split between drafting their own correspondence and brief reports and editing the work of others
