Subject: Funding for a Business Writing Course

I am writing to request funding to participate in an upcoming class, Business Writing, held at Un known University. The class will focus on effective writing strategies in a business setting and how writing simpler, clearer, and being concise will enable a better understanding of written material by the readers. Also focuses on effective communication strategies for oral and written formats either on a one-to-one basis or for a larger audience. It will also focus on how to write so that the reader understands the information you are conveying. This ten week class begins January 15, 2013 at a cost of $535.00. The registration fee includes all course materials that will be needed for the class.

This class will provide me with an opportunity for professional development and a stronger confidence in my writing ability for letters and reports. The class will provide me with the ability to better communicate with clients and co-workers with a clearer and better understandable format to my writing. This course will allow me to perform my current position in a more professional and timely manner. With improved writing abilities there will be less time explaining misconceptions and confusions of what was meant by the letter, report, email, or memo to the reader. The benefit to the company is the professionalism and creditability associated with writing in a clear and concise format that our clients will understand. Another benefit of my taking this course and improving my writing abilities is that our clients will have a greater confidence in our company’s abilities to handle their business needs.

Thank you for considering my request for funding a Business Writing Course at Unknown…...

Memo Error or Irregularities This memo discusses the main ideas of Hennes, Leone and Miller (2008) research on restatements reclassification that is studied using the guidelines from Gordon and Porter (2009) reading and understanding academic research. Main Research: There has been much research on causes and consequences of restatements. However, these researches are done using data that contain restatements consisting of both accounting errors and intentional misrepresentation. Hennes, Leone and Miller (2008) research suggest that stronger hypothesis can be developed if the restatements are partitioned as errors and irregularities. The research then proposes ways of distinguishing between these two kinds of restatements. The research question is both interesting and important. It will enhance the past literature related to the subject of restatements. Also, restatements have a significant impact on market and must be assessed properly. Following criteria classify a restatement as an irregularity * Firms using variants of words “irregularities” and “fraud” in disclosure * Restatements with related SEC investigation * Restatements with related independent investigation Restatements not meeting the above criteria are accounting errors. Main Findings: The main findings of the research are the following * The market reaction is much severe for irregularities than error * Restatements followed by class action lawsuits are mostly......

...found myself thinking about the author himself and his thought process while writing the article in his office chair in some sky rise with a killer view in New York City. It made me wonder if I will read like a writer every time I read from now on. It amazed me how one essay can change the way someone can look at a piece of writing. Reading Wagner’s article on gave me confidence to use these techniques in my own writings in the near future. Writings like business proposals, emails and interactions with other companies and industries, and even memos like the one you are reading now. Immediately I knew you all would prosper from this information. As industrialists you will be making the big bucks because of an education you dedicated yourself to, but just because you have a degree does not mean you are done learning. That is why I encourage you all to read Bunn’s Essay, which I will attach, a link to this memo. If we take pride in simple strategies of how we read and write as businesspeople, leaders, and more importantly as humans then we are setting ourselves up for success. I say “we, us” and “ourselves”, because this information is just as new to me as it will be to all of you. If you have any questions please email me, if not I will see you all at the meeting on Thursday....

...The documentary film for this assignment is “The Take”. It filmed by Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein, and took place in Argentina. Argentina was the most prosperous middle-class in Latin America; however, it changed when the Carlos Menem ruled the country in 1990s. Menem implemented many business- friendly policies that according to the rule book of International Monetary Fund (IMF), such as layoff and sold off most of public assets. All these things did not go as what he thought, and it lead to the economic collapse. Firstly, the currency started to drop in Argentina, and then multinational banks escorted a large amount of money out of the country. Next, the Argentina government had frozen all bank accounts in the country. In the results, the savings of ordinary people had locked off, while rich people got their money offshore. The most important thing was this circumstance made Argentina to have largest sovereign debt in the world history, and 50% of the populations were below the poverty line. Sum up, the prosperous and wealthy Argentina were no longer exist. The economic downturn in Argentina affected every Argentinians.

Marketng Memo

...Marketing Communications Memo Aeishya Grant PSY/322 June 01, 2015 Morgan Cloward Marketing Communications Memo To: From: Date: Re: Integrated Marketing Communications The organization has experienced a significant development in the last decade. Hence, to boost its customer base, it needs to create an integrated marketing communications plan. With the consideration of the various segmentation methods, I have come up with a positioning strategy for the organization against its competitive brands. Each of the segments has different needs and, therefore, to be practical, the segments must be considered individually to judge their quality, value, and significance. The organization must strive to understand its customers by the use of demographic and psychographic information provided in this memo. Both the demographics and the psychographics are important in strengthening the relationship between the customer and the business. Marketing research is more than the normal customer surveys. It entails understanding the importance of psychographic and demographic information obtained from the primary research methods and the evaluation of the data for the application of its results in improving the existing marketing strategies (Lamb, Hair, & McDaniel, 2012). Marketing research must also be......

...MEMO IE Business school Saturday, October 3rd 2015 Dear Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, My name is Sami and I have recently joined the MIM program for the September 2015 intake. I would like to constructively comment on the introductory weeks for this program and highlight some important details you may take into account for next year’s intake. I believe that this part of the program is very important and key to build a successful year ahead. First of all, I think that the 2 weeks introductory workshops were too long and sometimes got really boring and repetitive. my recommendation is to compress the pre-program to one week instead of two, that way students will get exposed to the MIM structure and will get to know each other before the start of the 1st module. In addition, some of the workshops we attended were very long lectures like the cross cultural workshop for example. I would recommend to include some interactive exercises where students could present themselves and reflect their background to the rest of the class. In that way students would me more familiar with each other’s cultures and can get the opportunity to bond and feel comfortable during the opening week of the program. Furthermore, Some sessions extended over the course of two days like the entrepreneurship workshop for example, in my opinion a single day is enough to introduce the concept of entrepreneurship to the students specially because they will be learning all about it......

...As high school comes to an end, and the college days draw near, a conmstant question comes to young high school grads. “Which one should I choose?” There is a total of 4,140 colleges in the United states for kids to choose from, each with their specific set of programs to offer the student. Yes, at first it be overwhelming but with the right guidance, high school student can make the best of their college experience. There are multiple ways to choose the college that’s right for you. One of the ways is to go with academics. What are the colleges programs, are they the one for you. This may take some intensive research, (which is why juniors in high school should have already started). Also do they offer all the classes you want, what is the teacher to student ratio? Another thing to consider is the price. Is it something you can afford to pay every smester. Your dorm(that is if you going out of state, or planning on living on campus), your books, and even if the college is in the state as you reside in all play a part in your tuition. There are also government services that can help you pay such as FAFSA and TAP. Another factor is the life on campus. Usually this is a deal maker or a deal breaker. If you are given the chance to visit the college DO IT. This gives you the chance to see how it is in person. Is it to your liking, is it too big or too small, is it public or secluded, are there a lot of......
