Me, Myself & I are Three Separate People: Writing Effective Professional Correspondence

Date: Friday, July 10, 2020

Time: 9:00 AM To 10:00 AM

Location: VIA ZOOM

Event Description:

Although we might be in 2020, email is not dead. In a recent survey, 73% of people said email is their preferred method of communication for work. And in our hyper-rushed lives, conveying the core message in as succinct a manner as possible will allow you to achieve better results.

In the newly created Me, Myself & I: Writing Professional Correspondence Workshop, Mr. Martin Penn will share tips on how to write concise emails as well as provide examples of good and bad emails. He will also explain conventional grammar rules that confuse even well-educated clinicians, such as the difference between affect and effect, who and whom, your and you’re, as well as other perplexing terms.

By the end of the sessions, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the proper times to use each of the pronouns me, myself, and I;
  • Describe the difference between homonyms;
  • Differentiate between confusing words;
  • Recognize extraneous words in communications;
  • Draft concise emails

    Target Audience:
    Faculty

    Speaker:
    Martin N. Penn, C.P.A., M.B.A.
