Business Writing for the Digital Era

About this event

Writing proper business-related documents in today's workplace requires a solid understanding of the fundamentals behind how specific documents should be approached, designed and edited. Written communications in the workplace should be concise, yet thorough and well laid out.

Technology enabled communications (emails and texts) should also be well thought out and designed to get the correct message across, while avoiding any potential misinterpretation.

This newly designed course teaches how to create business documents in the modern workplace, which takes into account the many forms that modern communication can take, and teaches participants how to best align their message with the appropriate documentation and device.
