EDC offers free workshop on Writing for Business
Effective business writing is not only a key tool, it defines one’s image as a business person or entrepreneur. Join the San Juan County Economic Development Council for a FREE workshop on the topic of Writing for Business, on Tuesday, November 22nd from 1–2:00 p.m. on San Juan Island. Advanced registration is required.
The secret to effective writing for business purposes is organization, directness and simplicity. Noted management consultant and author, Mike Sanders will present five tools to allow you to double writing speed and reader’s comprehension – to write powerfully and fast. These tools include clear, familiar words, short sentences with a single point, active voice sentence construction, using paragraph headings, and employing journalistic style. Free handouts and Business Writing Certification are included.
Details: San Juan Island, Tuesday, November 22nd from 1–2:00 p.m. at the San Juan Island Library in Friday Harbor. Free workshop; advance registration is required.
