We use email at the workplace every day. But it often fails to be the effective communication tool it is set out to be. Wrong salutation, poor sentence structure, badly organised text and lack of knowledge of email netiquette can result in miscommunication or disrupt workflows in the office.

This course addresses these issues so that you can write better emails at the workplace.
