Course description

AMA's Business Grammar Workshop

Professionals who can write clearly and correctly are far more valuable to an organization than those whose business writing is filled with errors. Whether you need to refresh your knowledge of grammar and punctuation—or know what’s grammatically correct but can’t always explain why—this highly interactive and collaborative course is the perfect and painless solution. Grammar in business writing gives you the tools to correctly apply the standard rules for proper usage in business writing. Using hands-on exercises, you’ll work with seminar colleagues to apply what you’ve learned so you can return to your job with the confidence of a writing pro.

Who should attend?

All professionals who want to improve their grammar skills and increase their confidence with all types of business writing.
