This class concentrates on the essentials of effective business communication. We begin with paragraphs and learn paragraph construction. We then move on to formatting business letters and emails.
The core of the class is learning to create effective business letters and emails. We must first identify our reader's (or customer’s) needs and expectations. We look at the three different types of emails and how to choose the appropriate one. We learn techniques for achieving clarity and precision. We conclude the module by looking at letters and emails with specific goals: the sales email, the proposal, the executive summary, getting meetings, saying no gracefully, and getting people to respond to your emails.
The class concludes with techniques for editing and proofreading the final version.
