Student Testimonials:

"This course has some excellent tips for clear email communication that I have never thought of before. Suitable for all levels, even those who consider themselves an expert in email writing." - Lisa Irawan

"The course was short, which is good, but to the point with a clear message. I would really recommend to go through it when you're struggling with a full mailbox and your email management." - Tomas Harcar

"I've been writing work emails for years, so I'd like to think I know what I'm doing, but I learned a lot of new things from this course. The instructor backs up most of his tips with research and live examples. It takes very little time to get through all of the videos, and you might be able to skip some of them, depending on your needs (the titles make clear whether they'll be relevant to you). Very helpful from a project management perspective." - Christine Browne
