Training course: Modern and effective letter and email writing in English

Training course: Modern and effective letters and emails in English

How to write successful and effective letters and emails and reply respectfully to complaints. A compact training course

Contemporary business correspondence in English is clear yet personal. In this compact seminar, participants are provided with simple and effective tools for wording letters and emails in a professional, customer-oriented style. The key to a professional style lies in precise and succinct messages presented in a well-structured format.

Expectations of letters and emails have changed radically. Anyone writing in the „old style“ today conveys a poor image of their company to customers and other communication associates.

Contemporary letters and emails are clearly structured and precisely worded. They are recipient-focused, easy to understand and free of obsolete phrases or „officialese“.

Training objectives: Participants find out how to write in a contemporary style with a range of practical tips and suggestions. They learn how to work out a basic structure for daily letters and emails, enabling them to create texts more quickly, more confidently and with a clear target in mind.

Duration: 1 day, 9 am to 5 pm
