(Read reviews)

Price: $199

Overview

Discover How to Pinpoint and Fix Your Writing Errors

Every time you send an email or submit a report, you are being judged on your writing skills. Business writing errors (even simple grammar mistakes) can complicate your message, confuse your readers, cost you money, diminish your professional image, and hold you back in your career.

Good writing demands more than a quick scan for spelling errors.

You need to consider punctuation, grammar, and other rules of thumb to ensure all your letters, memos, emails, and reports are mistake-free and built to impress.

Regardless of the medium you use, this webinar walks you through the most common mistakes and pitfalls and gives you a straightforward attack plan to weed out bad writing in every sentence.

In 90 minutes, you’ll learn how to troubleshoot what you’ve written to help you create business documents that say what you mean and achieve the results you want.
