On these pages, you'll find several real company examples. These examples demonstrate how companies use -- or fail to use -- business communication principles. More examples are included in news stories posted each week and will be added by chapter when discovered.
I welcome suggestions for new examples and would appreciate knowing about any broken links. You can email me at anewman[at]bizcominthenews.com. I hope you find these examples useful.
Chapter 1: Understanding Business Communication
Good sources for company examples:
- Slideshare.net: Many, many presentation slides.
- Letters of Note: A great way to waste a day. Read a 1987 casting memo for Star Trek, President Obama's thank-you note to the author of Life of Pi, Mark Chapman's letter from prison asking the value of an album he has signed by John Lennon (whom he murdered).
- Of course, company blogs, websites, Facebook pages, and Twitter feeds offer good examples as well.
