Language Centre presents free workshop
Correspondence and e-mail in your official capacity
15 March 2012
Effective correspondence (including e-mail) does not only reflect positively on yourself, but also creates a professional image of the company you represent. Ineffective correspondence, on the other hand, influences productivity in the working environment, and can also portray a negative image of your company to clients. If you are involved in the production and distribution of your company’s correspondence, you are probably aware of the implications of this aspect of business communication.
The Stellenbosch University Language Centre will be presenting a workshop on 15 March 2012 during which we will introduce strategies that ensure high-quality correspondence documents. The following topics will be discussed, among others:
- Correspondence as an integral part of effective business communication
- Effective writing strategies for correspondence
- Existing models of correspondence
- The differences between correspondence via paper and e-mail
- The influence of e-mail on the working environment
- The influence of correspondence on business relations
The workshop is aimed at employees in the public and private sector that have to correspond in their official capacity.
