Business Grammar and Punctuation Workshop

 

Studies have shown that most adults rate their grammar and punctuation skills much higher than they actually are! Unlike other aspects of writing, grammar and punctuation are strictly rule based. In this workshop you’ll learn those rules and apply them in intensive but fun activities.

 

The workshop is focused on two processes: Learning the rules and developing an “eagle-eye” to catch errors! 

 

To get the best results training needs to be directly applicable to your workplace.  Therefore, Corporate LearnOvations’ programs are customized to meet your strategic business goals and use your organization’s terminology and scenarios.  In addition, you select the workshop goals that best meet your needs.  For example, you might choose the workshop to focus on how to . . .
