Business Communication

It’s impossible to conduct business without being able to communicate effectively. Business Communication covers a broad range of topics. You have to understand your manager’s expectations, and how to exchange information and ideas with your co-workers. Effective business communication also means getting the right messages out to your customers and establishing clear channels of communication with your vendors and suppliers.

Our extensive library of business book summaries includes an impressive selection of abstracts that focus on the essentials of business communication. If you’re struggling to resolve personality conflicts within your department or dealing with a tyrannical boss, let getAbstract help you. Our website is easy to navigate and our sophisticated search tools can take you directly to your specific topic of interest in seconds.

Public Persona

While learning how to write an effective business plan or sales pitch is an undeniable component of business communication, many organizations struggle with their corporate image. In the aftermath of a decade of corporate scandals, the public demands financial accountability and ethical behavior. A number of our summaries address the issue of crafting a positive public relations strategy – and what to do when things go awry.

The Right Message

Many of our corporate clients report a noticeable difference in the level of communication within their organization. Employees are keen to share the knowledge they’ve gained through reading our summaries. The enthusiasm over getAbstract becomes contagious and makes learning enjoyable. Becoming a getAbstract partner tells your workforce that you care.
