Business Writing

Writing is a central element of the business world—through emails, social media, memos, marketing materials, and a myriad of other forms. Whether you seek to inform, persuade, or inspire—success or failure often depends on the power of your words and sentences. Good writing skills will enhance your image, increase your confidence, boost your productivity, and help you achieve your objectives. On a daily basis. And these skills may very well guide you to higher places in your career.

Note: This course touches on grammar and style points, but these things are covered more fully in Write It Right.
