Effective writing skills are critical to today's workplace. It may seem at times like all the communication takes place by text and email, but the truth is, millions of documents are generated daily in the workplace and clear communication requires skill. Learn how to write effectively at this half day virtual seminar.
Crafting the Perfect Communication - Writing effectively means putting the right words together in the right format for the right audience. It all starts with organizing your thoughts and planning your message.
Proofreading Properly - Your message could come across entirely different than you meant it if you don't proofread properly. Proofreading not only catches typographical errors, but also factual mistakes, contextual blunders and more. Poor proofreading has resulted in embarrassment, lost money, and even lawsuits. Discover the key considerations of proper proofreading.
Writing Persuasively - Writing can serve many purposes, from informational to entertaining, but one of the more important reasons to write is when you need to persuade someone to take action. That could be asking your company to support your professional development or convincing your vendors to offer you a discount. Learn more about the key elements you should include in any persuasive communication.
