FAU’s CCEW To Host Business Writing Roundtable

BOCA RATON, FLA. Feb. 22, 2019---Florida Atlantic University’s Community Center for Excellence in Writing (CCEW) will conduct a roundtable discussion offering strategies to improve workplace writing and how stronger writing can improve any business' reputation, branding, staff development, and customer, and employee relations. This event is co-sponsored by the CCEW, the Palm Beach Post and the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County.

“Deficient business writing is one of the most overlooked problems many businesses face; yet it can be corrected easily,” according to Jeff Galin, Director of the CCEW.  “Bad writing and inaccurate messages or instructions cause costly, but preventable, mistakes. Josh Bernoff recently wrote a piece for The Daily Beast stating that “bad writing is costing American businesses close to $400 billion every year.”

To help businesses improve their written communications, the CCEW will conduct a breakfast roundtable discussion from 8:30 am to 10:00 on Friday, March 8, 2019 at the FAU Boca Raton campus. The roundtable will be held in the CCEW offices, GS Building 2, Room 215, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Fla.  33431-0991.

Speakers include representatives from the Palm Beach Post; the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County; FAU’s Small Business Development Center; a former FAU professor of business writing, a small business owner; and the Director of FAU’s UCEW/CCEW.

Participants can also attend via Skype at https://join.skype.com/EBRB1vtmAC2V.

The normal cost for this roundtable is $150 per person; however, full scholarships are available for the first 40 registrants, thanks to sponsorship of the Community Center for Excellence in Writing. To register for this event, please visit our web site, http://www.fau.edu/ccew/.
