Written communication is often the very first interaction that you will have with a potential funder. Is the inability to effectively communicate proving to be your first and last communication? By attending this 3 hour Workshop: gain practical skills and knowledge on the importance of written communication skills; creating subject lines that encapsulate your communication; the importance of greetings and salutations; avoiding waffle – getting straight to the point, crafting a message that is succinct and clear. Be like a navy seal - get in; get the job done; and get out!
