Email writing – In-company training

In today's frantic "always-connected" world, it is easy to forget that we always need to present the most polished and professional image to those we communicate with. Too often, we only get one chance to impress, so we really need to make it count.

I've learned new techniques for writing emails and how to be clear and concise which was what I was hoping to achieve.
