Two-day workshop for University secretaries

A course designed around the needs of secretaries is taking place early next year.  The Secretaries Workshop is aimed at anyone working as a secretary, whether they are at the beginning of their career, or would like to refresh their skills.

Course contents include:

  • Business writing skills

Other issues like body language, initiative, and projecting a professional image, will also be covered. You will be able to put together an action plan so that you can continue your development.
