Business communication: author, writer, teacher, presenter


“I really enjoyed the workshop and took your message straight home! I opened three important letters I was just about to mail, and rewrote all of them!"

“I thought that as an English major, I had a clear and concise writing style. However, I learned that I could condense my professional and personal correspondence. From now on I will review all my writing, including e-mails and text messages, before sending them out!”

“I was surprised to learn the drastic difference between old and new PR writing, and to realize how awful so much business writing is. Now I am aware of my tone, audience, and writing techniques from e-mails to business documents—I’ve made many improvements and will continue to make more.”

“Thanks again for an extremely helpful seminar. I picked up some important new writing tips, and the staff who needed the most help seemed very pleased after the sessions.”

“The program opened my eyes to how influential writing can be when done well. I feel like the material makes a difference in my day-to-day interaction with co-workers.”

“I’ve gained so much confidence from this seminar. My e-mails have a lot more power behind them and the ones I craft now read levels above where I started. My writing continues to grow strong, and I can’t thank you enough for helping me make writing a tool that I can always rely on to put my best foot forward.”
