Effective business writing is not only a key tool, it defines one’s image as a business person or entrepreneur. Join the San Juan County Economic Development Council for a free workshop on advanced writing for business from 10-11 a.m., Wednesday, May 10 at Windermere Real Estate, at 50 Spring St. in Friday Harbor.
The secret to effective writing for business purposes is organization, directness and simplicity. Noted management consultant and author Mike Sanders will present five tools to allow you to double writing speed and reader’s comprehension – to write powerfully and fast. These tools include clear, familiar words, short sentences with a single point, active voice sentence construction, using paragraph headings, and employing journalistic style. Laminated quick reference cards and a business writing certification are included. Advanced registration is required. Call 378-2906 to reserve your space, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The EDC thanks Windermere Real Estate, San Juan County government, our ports, the Town of Friday Harbor, Heritage Bank, Islanders Bank and the Department of Commerce for their support of this workshop.
