Learning Objectives

Effective Business Writing & Grammar: Tips & Techniques – Five Course Outcomes

This webinar is designed to equip you with tools and techniques to ensure your business documents are a positive and professional reflection of you, your position, and your office. At the outcome of the webinar, you should feel more confident in the following:

  1. Writing business documents (correspondence, minutes, reports) with clarity that are impactful to and appropriate for specific audiences. Emphasis is placed on writing with brevity and on a reading level that fits the document’s reader.
  2. Reviewing grammar rules every professional should know and use. Over time, we forget basic grammar rules learned in school. The webinar includes a refresher on top grammar rules that seem minor but leave a major impression if used incorrectly.
  3. Employing tips and techniques to quickly but thoroughly identify and correct mistakes in business documents. This course will help attendees devise a protocol that includes quick and easy ways to spot obvious mistakes before a document goes out.
  4. Learning how traditional professional business document formatting has become modernized to better fit today’s technology. Although standard business letters have given way to business emails, that is no excuse for lacking professionalism.
  5. Exploring additional resources to help attendees learn and improve business writing and proofreading skills. A resource workbook will be provided as part of the webinar, and attendees will receive a list of additional resources that can be used to gain more knowledge and confidence in approaching business writing.


Effectively, efficiently and confidently approach business communications by enhancing both writing and proofreading skills.
