Writing it Right โ€“ Why the Words and Format Matter in Business

Date/TimeWednesday, August 5, 1pm – 2pm, ET



Are you afraid to write a letter (or e-mail or memo) for fear of saying it badly? Learn the basics so you get your points across in ways that demand attention and get action. For many people writing is just below public speaking in terms of the fear it generates, yet being able to communicate clearly and effectively is absolutely essential skill. Within good writing, there are several forms that are particularly important in business. These are e-mails, memos and reports. 

In this FREE webinar, I will discuss how to use each of them to their best effect with an emphasis on ensuring that the message you need to give and the action you want the recipient to take, is clear and well presented.  I will analyze each approach and give examples where, when done well, there is little or no ambiguity.  I will also provide examples that the participants can take with them as “take-aways” that provide added value.

Who Should Attend?

If you’re concerned about the impression you make when you send written communications for your business, this webinar will be very useful.  Love to “twitter”? You’ll learn, too.  Not comfortable with writing, period?  I’ll give you some guides to get you started.
