Writing with Purpose, Clarity, and Confidence

Increase the impact of all your business writing, with special emphasis on e-mail communication.

Business writing has evolved dramatically in our fast-paced, technologically-savvy culture. Gone are impersonal documents full of arcane expressions, redundancies, and convoluted syntax. The focus today is on facilitating the reader’s task through 1) a plain, elegant, and coherent style, 2) clear organization, and 3) good-looking design.

In this program, participants apply the principles of clear, precise, effective communication to various forms of writing — from everyday emails to sensitive letters and formal reports. The interactive presentation format makes learning stylistic issues fun — and not a chore. The session mixes discussion with small group exercises and individual work. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and become actively engaged with their own learning. Everyone receives a comprehensive self-study manual for continuing professional development.
