Seminar Description

In today’s environment, emails are by far the most commonly used communication method in the workplace.

We’ll cover key topics, including:

  • Writing for technical and non-technical audiences;
  • Having clear subject lines;
  • Structuring your emails—using a direct approach for maximum impact;
  • Incorporating clear topic sentences;
  • Using headings, tables, and lists effectively; and
