So many times I am in such a hurry to get an email sent out that I didn't consider all of the elements that should be included in the email. This course made practical sense and has given me a proven template to use to create professional, informative and results oriented messages going forward.

I like that the instructor was well-oriented with his presentation. Using body gestures promote conspicuity of the audience and captivates the attention of the listener. Using pointers and di[playing images and key terms and acronyms build memory and comprehension of the subject.

This was a good refresher course and I had a few take-aways. Upgrade overused 'cliché's' like 'Thanks' and when to use may (permission) or can (ability). Darrell was a good speaking, organized and I liked that he used people's names as acronyms to remember the information.

I loved this course. It helped me to see the ways that my writing had been boring, not adding a graphic & using more than "thanks" will really spice it up.
