Seven Secrets of Successful Business WritingCOURSE ID: SEVEN

Although good business writing can be a life-long pursuit, it is possible to learn the basic principles of good business writing in a relatively short period of time. This course is about the art and skill of good business writing. In particular, it’s about how to write business letters, memos, reports, and e-mails in a clear, concise and effective manner that will reflect well on the writer, be easy to read and meet the needs of his or her organization. (Available in 4 or 8 hour format)

Greg Conderacci, a BLI Senior Fellow, will be the trainer. Although he has a Magna Cum Laude degree in English from Princeton University where he was also Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Princetonian, Greg learned to write at America’s Best Writing School: The Wall Street Journal. One of the most intensively edited newspapers in the world, The Journal’s crisp, clear style has always been its hallmark. Greg was a Journal reporter for seven years, four in Detroit covering the auto industry and three in Washington covering economic policy. Today, he is a popular lecturer in the Marketing Department at the Johns Hopkins University Business School.
