Discover New Courses All Year Long

Better Business WritingJanuary is a month where we make resolutions, where we decide what we are going to accomplish in a year.  Why not make one of those resolutions to learn something new every month?  Cal Poly Humboldt and the Chancellor's Office has many options for you to accomplish that resolution.  CSU's Got Talent is a series of live webcasts featuring innovative and essentioal training for your professional and personal success.  Lasting an hour each month, every webinar will feature interesting topics that include teamwork, AI, work and personal relationships, innovation, commuinication, and many more.  Besides learning, you will have the chance to interact with staff and faculty from all CSU campuses, which is a great opportinity in itself.

Click here to see a list of the previous recordings.  Currently there are more than 80 recordings that you can choose from.

One that I personally like, is CSU's Got Talent Video: Better Business Writing.  Whether you are writing formal business documents, research papers, email messages, or social media posts,  this course will help you write with as much power and persuasion as possible. Effective business writing is key to career advancement and organizational success. This session is designed for those seeking real and immediate improvement in their business writing. In this webcast learn strategies and secrets of writing clear, compelling, correct business documents.

This year we have 10 webinars scheduled;  you can see all the topics below.
