Business Writing Workshop: Effective Communication for Professionals
Do you find yourself responding to dozens of written requests every day? If so, you are not alone.
As more work is performed remotely, the importance of writing is heightened. Today, the majority of communication takes place in a written format, so it is critical to master the art of writing effectively.
When you communicate with your customers and co-workers, the quality of your writing has a direct bearing on your company’s profitability.
- When writing to your customers, it is essential to communicate clearly. If your message lacks clarity, your customer will not be ready to make a purchasing decision.
- When writing to your co-workers, the challenge is crafting a message that is easy to read but still includes all of the key information. If your team members are trying to decipher a message that is either too short or too long, their focus will be diverted from generating revenue.
By attending this 4.5-hour recorded seminar, you will increase the percentage of customers who reply to you with a positive response, and you will decrease the time it takes for your co-workers to read your writing.
You will be able to email questions about the seminar to the presenter, Ryan Standil, who will reply within two business days.

Most importantly, his clear takeaways and focus on action meant that what students learned was translated into their daily routines.”

“When I watched Ryan’s presentation through a webinar, it immediately became clear that he is an energizing speaker who will hold your attention. I found it refreshing to see someone who is so concerned with grammar, spelling, and concise business writing. These skills are still necessities in today’s business world. Since viewing Ryan’s webinar, our team has hired him numerous times to speak at BDO.”
–Anita Janzen-Gemmell, Partner, Audit and Assurance, BDO
“Teaching business writing to a diversified group of people is difficult. I observed one of Ryan’s workshops delivered to a small group of investment bankers. It was the best workshop that I have seen on business writing. This group of smart, busy individuals was clearly engaged and extracting value throughout.”
