    Introduction and Course Overview
    You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the course. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.

    The Three C’s
    All writing should be clear, concise, and correct. We will look at these three elements in
    detail during this session and practice each of them.

    Grammar and Writing Mechanics
    This session will outline seven easy ways to help participants simplify their writing and
    ensure their grammar is correct. Participants will also take a close look at the proper
    length of paragraphs, what a paragraph should contain, and how to order paragraphs.

    Determining Readability

    During this session, you will help participants use the readability test (also called the Gunning Fog Index) on their own work.

    Writing Letters

    There are twelve important parts to a business letter, and several different styles. We will examine all of these closely. We will also look at the proper way of folding a letter and placing it into an envelope.

    Dealing with Specific Requests
    Often people are asked to respond to a request for information or to write a particular letter (of recommendation, for example). We’ll discuss some tips to keep in mind when writing one of these particular documents.

    E-mail Etiquette
    These days, e-mail has become a universal method of communication. However, there
    are many questions of etiquette and few answers. This session will discuss some
    common dilemmas and our recommended answers.

    Business Documents
    Another common task is to write a business case, request for proposal, or a formal
    report. Where would you start? We will provide some guidelines and checklists that will
    help with these tasks.

    Course Wrap-Up
    At the end of the day, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an
    action plan.

    Duration: One Day: 9am - 4:30pm

    About the courses


    The workshops are a fun & entertaining learning experience. We highlight skills throughout the course and provide practical information on solving current issues and situations. By applying the information personally to each of the participants we help provide real solutions for each individual.
    The way we deliver

    We discuss with participants what they would like to obtain from each course. This way the facilitator knows exactly what information will be useful to each individual. It also means each course is custom made to suit the individuals at the course and our participants can learn more at a quicker pace without covering material that may not be required. By learning from each other within the course the participants can take real skills back to the workplace.

    This helps everyone make the most of the training. Here are some additional details on why many people choose a Paramount course.
