Welcome to the SAGE companion site for Business and Professional Communication Playbook!

Business and Professional Communication Playbook teaches students the essentials of business communication and necessary skillset that employers look for today. Michelle Violanti and Stephanie Kelly use engaging examples, provide tips on how to carry yourself professionally, and incorporate real-life experiences from recent graduates to teach students how to communicate like a professional. Focused, bite-sized chapters on the most important topics in business communication, such as interviewing, writing resumes, and leading team presentations will motivate students to read and prepare ahead of time so instructors can focus on skill-building during class. By using this simple and flexible format, this text will provide students and instructors with an excellent foundation for a successful business communication course.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
