TeamAsia holds training course on effective business communication

(Manila, Philippines)—TeamAsia founder and president Monette Iturralde-Hamlin led an effective business writing seminar for Verizon Communication Philippines at TeamAsia’s brand new office wing in Northgate Cyberzone, Alabang, Muntinlupa City. A popular seminar facilitator, Iturralde-Hamlin delivers workshops on topics such as effective presentation skills and handling difficult people, among others.

The seminar, “Communicating with Impact: Effective Business Writing,” prepares management teams to achieve organized and concise writing in email correspondence, complaint response, letters and memos. The full-day session helps executives and management teams brush up on grammar and style with easy-to-grasp exercises, on-the-spot mentoring, and group discussions that identify and address writing challenges.

According to Iturralde-Hamlin, “Effective communication is the most critical ingredient to business efficiency and success. Time is often wasted on guesswork, misunderstandings and remedying their consequences. To be an effective communicator, you must be able to anticipate your audience’s needs.”

“The most important thing I’ve learned in this workshop is to write to express, not to impress,” said Mia Ann Calayag, a team lead at Verizon Communication Philippines. “[Iturralde-Hamlin] is very knowledgeable and approachable. She created a warm atmosphere throughout the training.”

“[Iturralde-Hamlin] was engaging, articulate and knowledgeable on the matter,” said affiliate engineer Mary Joyce Anne Napiza. “The most important thing I’ve learned in the workshop is that business writing doesn’t need to be too formal all the time.”
