  • Incorporate strong visuals (charts, graphs, tables, diagrams)
  • Compose meaningful and effective summaries and abstracts
  • Generate clear e-mails...quickly!
  • Choose the appropriate tone for your document
  • Improve grammar fundamentals and avoid common mistakes
  • Structure powerful oral presentations
  • Create relevant and compelling PowerPoint slides
  • Practice presentation delivery
