Grammar Crash Course (Half Day Morning Workshop) On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Your professional reputation depends on your written communication abilities!

Course Description/Agenda


Clients, supervisors, even coworkers may not even always know they're doing it - but they're judging you on your written communication skills. Grammar mistakes aren't simply embarrassing - they can impact how people perceive your intelligence and credibility. Poorly written memos, emails, or reports can not only cause misunderstandings or project delays, they can even create career-derailing mistakes that can haunt you for years!

If your professional reputation matters to you - if you want to be seen as the expert you are, you need to make absolutely sure that everything you write is polished, professional, and grammatically correct. Your career depends upon it!

That's why we've created this special two-part seminar.
