Here’s where you put it all together to give your business writing a competitive edge.  You’ll apply what you have learned in the Effective Written Communication workshop and take your basic business writing skills to the next level. Picking up where the first workshop left off, we’ll move on to advanced mechanics of writing; common email concerns and how to work with them; and finally link parts one and two to provide two opportunities for applying all you have learned to draft your own material in class. You will draft a persuasive proposal step-by-step, and learn techniques for saying "no" or giving bad news. You will work with additional techniques to make your reader want to read what you have written - and want to do what you ask. 


You will get the tools to:

  • Apply what you have learned to your own materials
  • Avoid offending or irritating your reader
  • Identify and "work around" the most common grammatical and usage errors
  • Gain new confidence in the correctness of your writing
  • Write compelling e-mails that get read, get results, and avoid disaster!
  • Recognize - and fix - common on-your-job e-mail problems
  • Use stronger, results-producing words and phrases
  • Identify jargon in your writing, and decide whether to use it - or not
  • Get more tools for professional writing
  • Say "no" or give bad news
  • Make your proposals more persuasive, more effective, step-by-step
