Program Description

DON’T LET SIMPLE MISTAKES RUIN YOUR CAREER

When someone sends out a report, memo or e-mail filled with errors, don’t you begin to question the professionalism (and maybe even the intelligence) of the author? And if you’re questioning it, don’t you think readers up and down the corporate ladder are thinking the same thing? You bet they are!

If you’ve ever written anything that you later looked at and thought, “What was I thinking?” then you need to attend these two powerful half-day seminars.

In our morning session, Perfect Proofreading Techniques, you’ll discover how easy it is to master the art of proofreading. We’ll show you simple strategies proofreading professionals use to make their documents perfect every time. Whether you’re proofing a two-line note or an extensive manuscript, there are some basic strategies that can dramatically shorten the time you spend proofing and increase your accuracy for finding mistakes. We’ll also cover important topics such as:

  • Proofreading versus editing – the critical difference that you NEED to know
  • How to make corrections WITHOUT changing the meaning of the document
  • An easy-to-use checklist that helps you catch the most common errors

Then, in the afternoon during our Business Grammar Made Easy workshop, we’ll cover the fundamentals of flawless business grammar. In this interactive workshop you’ll learn why it’s more important than ever to become “grammatically gifted” in today’s communication savvy world!

But don’t worry, this is not a rehash of your 7th grade English class … this is a fun, interactive look at the different ways people hang themselves and their credibility through the misuse of proper grammar. Register for the afternoon workshop and you’ll:

  • Learn why using improper grammar sends the signal that you aren’t a true professional!
  • Discover when you can – and can’t – bend the grammar rules a little to get your point across
  • Get a refresher on proper grammar and find out where most people
    go astray
  • Review the most common grammar goofs so you’ll be sure to avoid
    these costly mistakes

 

Stop putting it off. This is the best thing you can do for your career, your credibility and your organization.

Can you spot the the ERRORS?

The following paragraph was lifted from an actual memo passed along to us at one of our writing seminars. See how many errors you can spot.


To: All Associates
From : (Name Withheld In Order To Not Embarrass)

RE: The Company Holiday Party

This is to enform you of a change in the location ot our company holday party on on Friday. Because of the painting going on at the warhouse, all assoiciates are invited to join us at 2 o’clock in the multi-purpuse room fer food and beverages. Your going to have an exceptionable time because your mangers are all planning a holiday treat! We hope this change won’t affect your plans to attend.


How many mistakes did you spot?

If you found one mistake, then you did better than this poor soul whose mistakes went out to the entire company. If you found fewer than 12 in this short paragraph, then maybe you should register for our fun and informative seminars and give your skills a boost!

(P.S. Did you spot the word duplication in the title of this section?)
