CLM8134 - Business Communications Boot Camp

Course CodeCLM8134
Course TitleBusiness Communications Boot Camp

In this intensive, four-day writing and speaking workshop, you'll work hard on the most important and effective fundamental principles of work-related writing and speaking--not only in your more formal memos, e-mails, and presentations, but also in your crucial (and all too often overlooked) day-to-day interchanges with co-workers, supervisors, and customers. Fast-paced, interactive exercises will help you clarify your purpose and identify the most important points in your message before you start writing (or speaking), organize your points in a logical structure that will clearly communicate your message, draft a concise effective opening and closing, edit for content and conform to standard style practices, and adapt these skills for casual everyday business communication. 


  • In this course, you will learn how to:
  • Identify your purpose and your readers/listeners.
  • Collect essential information needed to communicate your message.
  • Produce, in a relatively short time, a working draft that matches your message and audience/readers.
  • Revise the draft for conciseness, effectiveness, and standard usage.
  • Develop a 'grabber' opening and a 'conclusive' conclusion.
  • Present your message to other participants in a concise, effective, well-organized talk and to the instructor in a written, near-final draft.


Anyone who wants to improve their work-related writing and speaking skills.
