Effective Email Communication - Writing Emails Powerpoint Presentation

Effective Email Communication - Writing Emails Powerpoint Presentation

This resource is a Powerpoint Presentation that can be used to train people on how to write emails effectively. I have used this on a leadership course and it was well received. There are some time saving gems in here that can be easily implemented into your work day. There are also tasks that can be completed in pairs or groups. Lots of areas for discussion. Also a good opportunity for businesses to think about and discuss best practice for their own organisation. The average office worker receives around 80 emails each day. With that volume of mail, individual messages can easily get overlooked. Follow these simple rules to get your emails noticed and acted upon: Don't over communicate by email. Make good use of subject lines. Keep messages clear and brief. Be polite. Check your tone. Proofread.

Poster: Anti-Discrimination Act, 1977 (NSW)

Poster: Anti-Discrimination Act, 1977 (NSW)

This poster on the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act focuses on its application to the retail industry. Looks great when enlarged and laminated and is a good reference for students of the Australian Retail Services Certificate II (SIR20216) and Certificate III (SIR30316) courses. Other states will have very similar legislation so the poster can be easily adapted to local needs.

From old market stalls to self-serve scanner

From old market stalls to self-serve scanner

Good newspaper article and comprehension questions that give an overview of the history of retailing in Australia. I use it as part of the Australian Retail Services Certificate II (SIR20216) and Certificate III (SIR30316) courses. It raises some great discussion points on changing interface with customers and changing technology.
