The second BritCham Academy session: How To Write E-mails Right? that took place on 9 November was on a very practical topic that we deal with in our everyday lives.
Our guest speaker Aiga Veckalne gave a great presentation on e-mail etiquette and gave us tips to make sure that we control e-mails and not the other way around. She used a brilliant example on how because of this communication tool's perceived informality, simplicity and fast way of communication some ways we ordinarily use it is actually so very obviously unacceptable when adapted to real life. Aiga also introduced the attendees with the 18 e-mail tactics that help you write better e-mails and improve communication with your team by Hassan Osman.
As we stated above e-mails (and the doubt and dilemmas connected with writing them) are something we deal with every day, however, now we feel a bit better equipped to handle it all correctly and for that we would like to say many thanks to Aiga! And we would also like to send a big thank you to our host Radisson Ble Elizabete Hotel!
The next BritCham Academy seminar is planned on 14 December at 9:30, the guest speaker will be Karlīna Anna Rozenfelde who will address the topic - Work Smart Not Hard. We will send out more information soon, however the sign-up is already open on BritCham's website.
