With the culture of remote work, team structures and digital tools changing rapidly, written communication has never been more critical to the success of an organization.

In this fast-paced workshop, Dr. Ali Atkison will show your team how to examine their own writing habits and improve their business-writing skills. The Business-Writing workshop series enhances employees' understanding of and ability to recognize common factors that are essential to effective business communications, and it teaches employees specific tactics to improve their business-writing skills.

The workshop series teaches employees how to maximize the impact of written communication through improved tone, clarity, and conciseness. This workshop series also introduces an effective yet easy-to-implement 3-step process for the construction of successful business documents.

Ali’s approach is fun and interactive, and she ensures that your employees can employ this newfound knowledge in their roles, thus positively impacting their everyday communication and your organization’s bottom line. This course will ultimately afford your employees an understanding of the power of words and the skill to use them impactfully.

Upon completion in this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Identify and articulate the impact of their written communications on their reputations, their careers, and their organization

• Write more clearly and concisely, ensuring impactful communication
