Writing well will always be a critical business skill. The tools and methods may change, but the fundamentals of good writing remain the same. Strong writing skills are a "marker" for people who are more intelligent, more promotable and more valuable. In this informative and entertaining program, you will get practical guidance on how to improve your writing. We will talk about the mechanical aspects of writing improvement, including word selection and document organization. We will spend more time on style issues, giving you easy-to-follow guidance that will change the way you write. Writing is a skill best honed through practice, so participants will be expected to participate in exercises where we will repair and improve samples of bad writing. You will have the opportunity to customize the program on the fly as the group identifies specific forms of writing … correspondence, email, speeches, websites, etc. … that we will explore in more depth. You WILL be a better writer, and a more effective communicator … at the conclusion of this program.
