Course Detail: P_PROFWRIT - Professional Writing Workshop: 2-Day Intensive

Whether you love it or hate it, good writing is vital to your reputation and to getting ahead. You need to be able to express your ideas clearly, concisely, and persuasively. In this course, we will start with what you learned about writing in school and discuss how to apply it to professional writing. You will learn how to reduce frustration and wasted time as we solve day-to-day writing problems, while identifying common mistakes. This course is for marketing and communication professionals, project and product managers, administrators, and anyone else who is concerned about presenting a professional image in his or her written communication.

In this course, you will have an opportunity to learn how to:
