The German American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.
together with its member Littler Mendelson invite you this time to an evening seminar on

Defensive Writing Skills: Email and Social Networking



Each day we communicate via email in order to keep our business running, to communicate with customers, and to share information with business partners, colleagues, or just friends.  However, email and social media create social risk for business.  Social media tools have become a substantial part of our daily communication form on a corporate as well as private level.  To write an email seems rather easy: write – click – send – click – done.  Nevertheless, there are many risks when emailing and using social networking tools.  During this business seminar, we want to explore those common mistakes and areas of potential legal liability and hopefully learn how to avoid them.  Come and gain insight on the following:


  • How to avoid legal risk when using email or social networking tools;
  • How to approach different business partners, customers, or colleagues;
  • How to communicate directly and clearly without sounding offensive.

Our speakers will be Philip M. Berkowitz and Barbara Hoey of Littler Mendelson.
