Don’t Let Your Emails Sound Like a Dusty Museum Exhibit. Update Them for the Digital Age! 2

I remember back in the day, when “with deepest gratitude” and “I trust this message finds you well” were the norm in our correspondence.

As a former Bilingual Private Secretary, I’ve witnessed many changes in writing styles over the years. Today, people want clear and simple language they can easily understand.

So, let’s ditch those dusty phrases and update your email writing for the modern world

Ready to make your emails shine? Let’s dive in!
