ABOUT THE TRAINING
This half-day workshop is a lesson in all things grammatical with a serious business focus. Tailored to those in financial services, it addresses the day-to-day writing mistakes that can undermine our professionalism and clearly explains how to use:
Commas, colons, semi-colons
Dashes and hyphens
Different forms of parenthesis
You will come away feeling much more confident in your ability to edit work; you will understand what’s grammatically right and wrong; and you will be able to use punctuation to add impact to your writing.
