Event Description

How do you write emails that are effective, clear, and concise?

 

With an increase in reliance on working and connecting remotely, emails are more important than ever as a key communication medium. Clients and colleagues expect your emails to be clear and to the point, whether they are reading from a mobile phone or device.

 

This 90-minute webinar is focused on giving you the tools to write effective emails. We will cover key topics, including:

 

  • Writing persuasively for different audiences
  • Having clear subject lines
  • Structuring your emails—using a direct approach for maximum impact
  • Incorporating clear topic sentences

 

We’ll review effective and ineffective emails and you’ll be able to immediately incorporate key takeaways for your writing. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions as well.
