Business Grammar & Proofreading

Program Description:

Dear Professional:

Business Grammar & Proofreading is a new one-day workshop that features a phenomenal, “no-fear approach” to business grammar and proofreading skills. This skill-packed program has been designed for busy professionals like you who want a super-fast, easy way to brush up on grammar, spelling, proofreading, and business usage.

We’ve boiled down hundreds of grammar and usage rules to “the most important of the most important,” focusing on those contemporary grammar skills that will make the biggest, most immediate impact on your written business communication. This fast-paced, interactive learning adventure presents information in easy-to-grasp concepts that make learning fun — and painless. You’ll be startled at how much you’ll absorb, retain and enjoy!

An important feature of our exceptional workshop is a special update on the newest standards in business usage. You’ll discover how to handle courtesy titles, gender-pronoun problems, terms that may be considered insensitive or even offensive, and fresh alternatives to outdated words and phrases that have fallen out of favor.

Packed with tips, tricks and easy-to-remember techniques, this workshop is a must-attend event for you if any part of your job involves communicating in writing. Whether you prepare formal business reports, proofread business letters, send e-mail to customers or clients, or jot memos to your boss, the skills you’ll learn will add professional polish — and accuracy — to every sentence you write!

Don’t wait any longer to get the crucial grammar and proofreading skills you need to shine like the credible, capable professional you are. Enroll today!

Sincerely,

Susan Enyeart
Director of Curriculum
