You will need to print some material which complements the video lectures, so access to a printer is advisable.
Ideally, you're working in a field which requires regular email communication with a variety of people. This course requires you to apply the knowledge to your workplace.
You're either a native English-speaker, or have advanced knowledge of English (e.g. CEF B2+)
According to Business Insider, "the average U.S. employee spends about a quarter of his or her time at work combing through the hundreds of emails each employee sends and receives each day ".
But despite the sheer volume of emails we send and receive, many business professionals do not use email appropriately. Inappropriate email etiquette can negatively impact on perceptions of professionalism, on efficiency and can increase a company's risk of liability.
This course helps you minimise that risk by coaching you in exceptional email etiquette. Naturally, that includes a focus on professionalism in the workplace, behaviour, email structure, formatting, spelling, the importance of spelling and grammar, the all-important subject line and much more.
Based on my eleven years' experience training professionals in more effective business communication, this course is your go-to guide to write right, every time.
