EMAIL ETIQUETTE

Description: In an age where to text is to "communicate," this seminar is a refresher on how crafting a well-written e-mail entails delivering just enough information to be efficient, and just enough politeness to convey respect. Your staff will learn why “reply-all” is dangerous; tune-up their e-mail salutations and complimentary closes; and observe how “please” and “thank you” help convey tone—and get results.

PLAIN LANGUAGE: THE WRITE STUFF

Description: If the thought of drafting a report sends shivers up your team’s collective spine, or if their memos are verbose and meander without meaning, this writing workshop has the solutions. With practice activities that help non-professional writers organize their thoughts and words more concisely and methodically, this course is also ideal for anyone who’s ever suffered writer’s block, split an infinitive or dangled a preposition.

PROOFREADING FOR PERFECTION

Description: Discover why proofing makes perfect in this workshop designed for anyone who writes--or anyone who must edit others' writing. With his experience as an editor for Town & Country magazine as guide, Thomas P. Farley will share his tips and tricks for catching accidental errors as well as the habitual mistakes you may not even realize you've been making. We can't guarantee you'll never make another typo, but when you do, you'll find it and correct it before anyone else is the wiser.

POWERFUL PUBLIC SPEAKING

Description: Does your staff cram PowerPoint slides with data to cover all bases—and to cover their own fear of public speaking? This session gets them off and running with a clean slate, providing strategies and practice opportunities for delivering a message that will sizzle and never snooze. With the opportunity to prepare and then deliver on-camera, attendees get to analyze their own performances on-screen, making tweaks to hook an audience with ease.
