Do you suspect your writing tends to go on too long and is not as organized or as focused as it could (or should) be? Have you ever used ASAP in an email message? Do you want to know why you shouldn't use it? Do you want to write more effective proposals or reports? Do you want to write in a more effective and efficient manner? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this webinar is for you.
