AMA's Business Grammar Workshop (Live Online)

Avoid costly and embarrassing mistakes in all types of business writing.
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 live online seminar is the perfect and painless solution. You’ll learn the standard rules for proper usage and grammar, and then work with your seminar colleagues to apply what you’ve learned in hands-on exercises and activities. Return to your job with greater confidence and ability when writing any types of business correspondence.
