AMA's Business Grammar Workshop

Program Description

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 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.

How You Will Benefit

  • Produce coherent sentences that quickly get to the point
  • Edit for agreement between parts of speech within a sentence
  • Apply simple, effective tips for proper grammar, usage and punctuation
  • Correctly proofread business messages
  • Use rules of Standard English to critique your own writing
  • Select the appropriate grammar to suit the business situation
