Powerful Email, Business Writing Training
Remains Critical in Texting Digital Age :), Says Whelan

-- --

Washington, DC, November 2010 -- The primary written communications of an entire millennial generation that's now in the workforce consists of on-the-fly text messages –"OMG dude, my boss is giving the most boring z-z-z presentation. R U going 2 night? :)"

Growing legions of smart phone users are adopting the same texting and email writing habits. User-generated websites, blogs, and other social media reflect the same weak writing skills. And, newspapers, which have cut editors, are filled with basic writing errors.  All seem to ask who—in an increasingly digital world—really needs powerful business writing skills, observes Michael Whelan, president of Whelan Group Seminars, an internationally respected business writing and communications training firm.

"Business emails, decision memos, proposals, letters, reports, strategic plans, board reports, annual reports, white papers, speeches, PowerPoint presentations, and publications," Whelan emphasizes, "still demand professional, powerful written communications skills to achieve RESULTS."

Because managers find that newer staff, in particular, write the way they think, Whelan reports getting more queries about his most popular on-site workplace seminars, "10 Secrets to Powerful Business Writing" and "10 Secrets to Business Email that Gets Results." Despite the economic downturn, Whelan reports that last year was his most successful year in 25 years of training managers and staff in 20 countries around the world.

Rozanne Weissman, winner of 60 international and national marketing communications awards, is the latest addition to the Whelan Group trainers' roster. In response to reported training budget and staff time constraints, she has been working with Whelan to design a new half-day seminar that combines the 20 critical business writing and email secrets.  The session, which includes a workbook and two takeaways, was piloted for individuals at First Class this month to rave reviews.

"While it can't offer as much hands-on 'discovery method' training as the full-day or two-day intensive seminars, it meets a growing need with today's economic and workplace realities.  In our increasingly competitive global world, responding to more than 100-200 business emails daily and simultaneously juggling other writing assignments is the norm," Weissman notes. "Our training increases staff productivity and provides institutions with a competitive edge."

The firm's clients over the years have been a virtual "Who's Who" in the worlds of business, finance, law, healthcare, nonprofit, and government.
