Class Delivery: AMA's Live Online Seminars are live, interactive, instructor-led courses that are completely user-friendly and accessible from your office or home PC. They’re the perfect time-saving alternative when you want training but can’t get away from the office.

You'll be able to speak to and/or electronically communicate with the instructor's and other attendees. You can also share files, view the instructors desktop, ask questions, tell the instructor to speak louder, softer, slow down, etc. (through simple icons). You'll see what your instructor is writing, view and hear questions and comments from other attendees, and be able to work in subgroups.  A headset is required for optimal communication throughout the Live Online Seminar.

A member of AMA's expert faculty of business professionals will lead your seminar. Beyond our course leaders’ experience in business training, they are specially trained to present AMA's high-quality content in an engaging, live online format.

We want you to feel completely comfortable and ready to go, so we’ll email you before your scheduled seminar and give you all the information you need about the simple set-up process.     

What you'll learn in this business writing class:

Discover How to Pinpoint and Fix Your Writing Errors

Every time you send an email or submit a report, you are being judged on your writing skills. Business writing errors (even simple grammar mistakes) can complicate your message, confuse your readers, cost you money, diminish your professional image, and hold you back in your career.

Good writing demands more than a quick scan for spelling errors.

You need to consider punctuation, grammar, and other rules of thumb to ensure all your letters, memos, emails, and reports are mistake-free and built to impress.

Regardless of the medium you use, this webinar walks you through the most common mistakes and pitfalls and gives you a straightforward attack plan to weed out bad writing in every sentence.

In 90 minutes, you’ll learn how to troubleshoot what you’ve written to help you create business documents that say what you mean and achieve the results you want.

What You Will Learn: Because you are often perceived by how well you write, this program will explore a wealth of tips you can immediately use to strengthen your ability to write flawlessly.

What We Will Cover
  • Identify the top 7 structure and agreement mistakes and learn how to correct them
  • Understand modifier problems and learn how to prevent the confusion they cause for your reader
  • Learn the worst punctuation pitfalls and know how to avoid them quickly and easily in your writing
  • Recognize the 22 most commonly confused words and discover tricks to choose them correctly
  • Learn best practices for precision in editing and proofreading
Note: Webinars are designed to provide a one-to-one learning experience for an individual and are not designed to be viewed in a group setting. Program access is available only via the MYAMA account of the registered attendee.

I registered for a webinar. Why haven’t I heard from you?
