Tips for Making Your Communications Successful

Gloria G. Jones, Winthrop University

Richardson Ballroom

8:40 AM - 9:25 AM

Anytime we send written communication, we must aim for two goals: clarity and correctness. Because we are not face-to-face with our recipients, they do not have the opportunity to ask us to explain something that is not clear. It also follows that the recipients will make judgments about our competence based on the correctness of our communication. While not everyone will be able to name the “error,” the reader will usually recognize that something does not “sound” or “look” right. Our goal in this time together is to examine some common errors that we all make and see how to avoid them and to work on ways to reduce wordiness in order to keep our communication clear and correct.
