Business or Organization Workshops

Much of our communication in the workplace takes place in writing—emails, reports and memos, speeches and biographical statements—and all of these tasks require not just a knowledge of basic grammar, but a clear understanding of how to write for a specific audience and purpose. Here at the CCW, we’re here to help. An SVSU faculty or staff can come to your business or organization to help your employees write these kinds of documents—just contact us to learn more.
