You practiced writing and critiquing a persuasive memo prior to this Assignment. Requests for funding for either a new venture or initiative are a common business occurrence and demand careful organization to present a persuasive, thoughtful request. For this Assignment, prepare a 350–500 word persuasive memo to your supervisor requesting that your company sponsor you individually in a business writing course that is available at the local university.
If you are not currently working, you may create a fictitious company, supervisor, and position for yourself. In your memo, provide your supervisor with the following:
- Justify taking this course; include an outline of the benefits the company will receive from your participation in such an effort.
- Include the amount of money you are seeking,
- Specify how long the course will take you to complete, and how your time spent completing the course will impact your performance at work.
- Further guidelines for writing the persuasive memo are posted in Doc Sharing, labeled “Unit 1 Memo Template.”
This Funding Memo is due by the end of Unit 1. Complete the funding memo as an MS Word document. Save it in a location with a title you will remember and that includes your name. To submit, go to the Dropbox and click on the Unit 1: Funding Memo link and follow the instructions. Make sure that you save a copy of the paper you submit.
