Persuasive Writing for L&D and HR Professionals

Unleash the power of your words to persuade key stakeholders! Whether you’re trying to get management to approve an initiative, learners to fully engage in a training program, or the entire workforce to comply with key protocols, you need to write convincing messages focused on the needs of the reader.

In this dynamic, fast-paced webinar, Jack Appleman, business writing instructor and top-selling author, will lead you through a series of challenging exercises—which you can submit for his review in real time!


1. Grab attention with engaging subject lines and compelling language

2. Address your reader’s WIIFM (What’s in it for me?)

3. Don’t just say it—show it!
