Program Description

Dear Professional:

Good business writing grabs your readers’ attention ... it commands involvement, enhances understanding and inspires action. Simply put, good business writing gets results.

While the objective of every business writing project is simple, many professionals flounder when they put words to paper. That’s usually because they’ve bought into ideas about writing that just aren’t true. For instance, do you ever find yourself thinking ...

“Good writing is a talent you have or you don’t, and I’m a ‘have not.’ ”

“Writing is a laborious, frustrating process.”

“Good business writing adheres to strict grammar and composition rules, and I’m not interested in nor do I have time to memorize a bunch of rules.”

If you can converse successfully in your organization, you can be a good business writer ...

  • Writing skills CAN be learned
  • You CAN cut your writing time by 30 to 40 percent and reduce
    the frustration dramatically
  • And, you don’t have to memorize hundreds of rules

Maybe best of all, when you attend this workshop, we’ll show you how to avoid all of the dread and most of the drudgery in your business writing.

Take this important career-enhancing step toward better writing by enrolling in How to Write Better & Faster today!
