Communication is one of the most important aspects of a successful business. Come join us for two, 90 minute workshops on business writing basics. This online course/workshop is designed to help business people critically analyze and create stronger writing.

Writing for a specific audience, in a clear and concise manner, is fast becoming a lost art. People are in a hurry and they write quickly and forget some of the most important parts of message dissemination.

This workshop takes into account many of the changes we see in our world today. It briefly touches on sexism and gender free wording as well as using the correct positive words to convey messages.

You will learn how to streamline the writing process, identify your audience and adapt your writing to that audience. Tips will also be given on how to structure content for optimum results. Three distinct areas will be covered: planning, first draft and editing/final product.
