Course Description

The ability to communicate clearly through your writing has become more important than ever in today’s lightning-fast business environment. In fact, hiring managers say they specifically look for people with superior writing skills when they are hiring new employees. And to be honest, if you’re sending out written correspondence — from emails to memos to reports and more — with errors, typos and bad grammar, it looks terrible and can have a permanent effect on how people see you.

We’ve taken the dread out of learning these essential business skills and created a course that’s actually INTERESTING and FUN to attend!

That’s why we developed this course, Business Grammar & Proofreading, a fun training session that makes learning this critical skill fun — not like a mindless, boring day back in fourth-grade grammar class. Packed with enjoyable exercises, lively discussion and real-world examples of how you SHOULD be writing, this can be…seriously…a career-changing class.

Attendees have told us that after they get back to work, they receive high praise for their writing, and other employees begin to copy their style. That can be you too if you enroll in this terrific course today!
