Frequently Asked Questions

When professionals think of business communication, they almost unanimously envision a conference room (or now perhaps a Zoom call) with a presenter, or a vibrant conversation or a sales pitch. But often overlooked in the context of communication is business writing. Email, chat and even meeting invites set the stage for those larger conversations that occur as a group. This LatimerNext course focuses on making the greatest impact possible through your keyboard.

Do you spend a large portion of your day communicating through writing? If so, it is critical to generate the greatest impact through your written word.
