Business Writing Basics: Write it Right

Wednesday, April 11, 2012, at the U.Va. Richmond Center, 8:30 am–3:30 pm

Program Preview

Composing a well-written business document is as important as dressing appropriately for work: both reflect who you are. In fact, your business contacts may know you only through your written correspondence. A clear, concise business letter, memo or e-mail reflects well on you and your organization. Good business writing communicates exactly what you mean to say in a way that the reader will understand, and helps you get the results you want.

In this course, you will learn 8 basic steps to writing effectively, including organizing your thoughts, analyzing your audience, and enlivening your message using simple, clear language.

Attend this class and learn to

      • assess your audience

      • determine and prioritize your key points

      • use clear, concise language rather than technical jargon and out–of–date words and phrases

      • strengthen your writing weaknesses
      • focus on using proper grammar and identify resources for effective writing
