“Business & Brilliance: Writing for the Boss” will take you through methods for providing any writing that the boss wants — from simple email etiquette to writing the advanced report. This course is not the instructor lecturing to you, but a course where you can bring whatever project you are working on in your job or education and receive one-on-one assistance. This workshop will be coupled with training in email expectations, marketing, web-content writing, customer service responses for client retention, grammar and social expectations in writing, RFP/grants-writing assumptions, resume and cover letter design, and audience recognition for every writing project your boss throws your way. Remember, the internet serves you but you and your company serve the internet too. This course will prepare you to be one of your company’s “wordsmiths” and add to your leadership within the corporate structure regardless of the business in which you serve.
“Business & Brilliance: Writing for the Boss” will be offered in an eight-week session in the upstairs writers’ room at the Jess Odom Convention Center, Edgewood Drive, Maumelle, AR on WEDNESDAYS from April 22 – June 9 from 6-8 PM.
You are invited to bring any business projects on which you are working. Fee is $200.00 for the 8-week, 16-hour session – that is 12.50 per hour for both one-on-one editing and strengthening your business writing skills.
