Faculty: Communicating with Confidence- Get to the Point! Writing Effective Emails and Reports

Faculty: Communicating with Confidence- Get to the Point! Writing Effective Emails and Reports

April 21, 2015
River Room Crossroads
9:00 AM-11:00 AM

Too much time and money is wasted today because information is not effectively communicated. We spend our time crafting the message or trying to decipher it. In this practical, interactive session, you will learn techniques on how to write more effective and focused communications.

This session provides techniques on:
• Organizing the writing task.
• Identifying primary information and directing readers' attention to it.
• Arranging facts for maximum impact.
• Writing action-getting letters and emails.
• Writing direct and concise messages.
• Sharpening personal writing style to create a strong, effective presence.
• Structuring a coherent proposal.
• Communicating your research clearly, concisely, and confidently.

In today’s fast-paced environments, we cannot afford to underestimate the power of the written word.

***Communicating with Confidence for Faculty is a 3 part workshop series. Register for one session, two or all three! The focus of the first session on March 31st is oral communications, the second session on April 21st focuses on written communications, and the third session on April 28th focuses on effective meetings.
