About the Course
Though e-mail standards are still evolving, this course will share with you the basic guidelines to write better e-mails. Additionally, we are often bogged down with e-mails that are too long, wordy, and unclear. Instead of wasting time rewriting, clarifying and causing miscommunication – write it once, write it right, and get the job done the first time. This interactive and informative course that uses a blended-learning approach helps participants become more polished and professional in their e-mails and documents to their colleagues, vendors, and customers.
This highly effective e-mail writing course will equip you with simple yet effective e-mail writing techniques to structure and write professional e-mails to your bosses, colleagues and customers.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Streamline your thought process and save time by focusing on what to write instead of how to write it;
- Eliminate numerous time-consuming revisions by organising your thoughts and structuring your sentences correctly, concisely and clearly;
- Present your message in a professional and reader-friendly format;
- E-mail etiquette that identify and avoid embarrassing common grammar mistakes in e-mails;
- Learn quick and easy editing techniques with practical writing tips;
- Write professional, respectful emails that drive action and reflect well on you, your team, and your company.
“Great business courses by Emma! I walk away with some great tips and insights which are not just ideas that have no practical consideration. The class’s spirit of spontaneity and engagement is also very encouraging for my learning. Every trainer should be able to keep the attention of the class just like she has.” – Jess Tang-Xin, Senior Admin Executive, Singapore Workforce Development Agency
