Development & Alumni Relations: Effective Email Writing new Finished 09:30 - 17:00 Development and Alumni Relations: Great Ouse

Email is a problem that is hiding in plain sight. We all use email every day. Yet, too often, email fails to be the effective communication tool it deserves to be.

In this intensive, practical session, we’ll show you how to produce effective communications. You will leave the session to:

  • easily build a logical structure into emails and letters
  • write clearer responses that result in fewer escalations
  • get your message across, whatever you’re writing
  • match your tone and level of language precisely to each reader

and much more!

The workshop includes a pre-course individual writing analysis to help identify areas for improvement.

Development & Alumni Relations: Onboarding Passport - Briefing for Line Managers (online) new Finished 12:00 - 13:00 Development and Alumni Relations: Virtual

The onboarding passport supports our new starters in developing their knowledge about their role, their team, CUDAR and the University. It has been designed to help them feel connected to other parts of CUDAR and understand how we fit within the Cambridge ecosystem.

It includes new and improved activities to create excitement and deepen their engagement. Much of the content is deigned to be self led so that the new starter can pace the content without becoming overwhelmed but there is a significant role that line managers will need to play in terms of keeping them on track, asking questions and prompting conversations that will solidify what they are learning along the way.

To support line managers we have also created a corresponding Line Manager Guide to ensure that you are clear on your responsibilities in the journey.

This briefing session will take a closer look through the passport and corresponding LM guide, in particular highlighting the key moments that line managers will engage with the journey.
