About

Over seventy companies and tens of thousands of students worldwide have used Effective Communication to deliver ideas powerfully in the workplace. By taking Effective Communication - Writing, Design, and Presentation offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder, you’ll hone your written, visual, and verbal business presentation skills. 

You'll learn to write well-organized, clear business documents; to design elegant presentation slides, reports, and posters; and to present and speak with confidence and power. 

In the final Capstone Project, you'll develop a portfolio of work—including a memo, a slide deck, and a presentation—to showcase your communication skills and represent your personal brand.
