Famous quotes, the way a woman would have to say them during a meeting

“Give me liberty, or give me death.”
Woman in a Meeting: “Dave, if I could, I could just — I just really feel like if we had liberty it would be terrific, and the alternative would just be awful, you know? That’s just how it strikes me. I don’t know.”

“I have a dream today!”
Woman in a Meeting: “I’m sorry, I just had this idea — it’s probably crazy, but — look, just as long as we’re throwing things out here — I had sort of an idea or vision about maybe the future?”

“I will be heard.”
Woman in a Meeting: “Sorry to interrupt. No, go on, Dave. Finish what you had to say.”

October 21, 2015: UPC Professional Development: Business Writing with Brenda Miller

UPC Professional Development Workshop: Brenda Miller, “Business Writing”
Wednesday, October, 21, 2015
12:00-1:00 p.m.
Room 506 – Hoffman Hall, UPC
FREE for Members; $10 Non-members and Guests

Description: How you communicate via e-mail affects the way people perceive you professionally. Despite this fact, most of us receive little if any formal guidance on how to use e-mail effectively. Whether you are a novice who breaks into a sweat when asked to send out an e-mail announcement or a “pro” looking to fine-tune your skills, you will walk away from this program better equipped to write more effective and tactful e-mails.
At this seminar you will:

1. Learn a helpful structure for planning, writing, and revising e-mails,
2. Gain confidence in your ability to come across professionally through e-mail,
3. Walk away with strategies and tools that you can use as soon as you get back to your desk.
