5.0 stars As a ten-year professional journalist, I was very impressed with the new strategies of written communication taught by Allyncia. The results-oriented focus make the lessons applicable to daily business life and interactions. The communications math formula is a great way to express dialogue, whether it is written or oral. Her tremendous resources with books, websites and authors encourage further learning after the course as well. Excellent course and I will recommend others!
