During the 2 days of classwork, those attending the course learn the principles of effective business writing. The students transfer what they learn into immediate improvements. The course is fun and engaging.
The course combines a full suite of modern learning tools to accelerate learning. During the 3-5 days of classwork, the instructor/coach presents the material using visual, audio, and kinesthetic elements so those attending see, hear, and experience the ideas and concepts.
