Communicating Through Email
Email offers people flexibility and time savings when choosing to communicate with groups. When completed with intent and thought, email messages can prompt the reader to positive action. All too often however, email messages are written in haste. The recipient can be offended or simply ignore the content. Furthermore, the level of professionalism of an email (e.g., readability, call to action) has a direct link to the reader’s perception of the sender.

The purposes of this seminar are to (a) provide tips and strategies for making your email message clear, appropriate, readable and actionable and (b) learn how to tailor email content to your professional profile.
