Email Essentials

Author(s): Shirley Taylor
ISBN: 978 981 4771 72 6

Reading, writing and managing e-mail is taking up an increasing amount of our time. But are we using it right? Just as body language helps you to make an impression in person, what you write and how you write it affects what people think of you and your organisation. Be it a thank you note, a meeting reminder, a proposal or a sales pitch, a well-written message that looks and sounds professional will make it easier for people to want to do business with you. It will help people feel good about communicating with you and help you achieve the right results.

This invaluable guide offers step-by-step pointers that readers can put into practice right away. The highlight of the book is a series of 10 model email templates, covering scenarios like requests for information, conveying bad news, complaints and sales prospecting. These are explained and analysed to show what makes them simple yet effective.

Honest Good Food

Author(s): Chef Benny Se Teo
ISBN: 978 981 4771 02 3

Chef Benny Se Teo is the creative force behind a highly successful chain of restaurants, known not just for its hearty, no-nonsense good food, but also for its continuing efforts to help ex-offenders and youths at risk.

Himself an ex-offender, Chef Benny's inspirational life story is now the backdrop of his first cookbook, Honest Good Food, where he brings together a collection of comfort food recipes, inspired by his childhood memories and personal experiences, and most notably his internship at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen in London.

With punchy quotes, personal anecdotes and cooking tips, Honest Good Food provides an insight into what drives this plain-speaking chef, his culinary secrets, and what some of his favourite dishes are. As Chef Benny says, "cooking, like life, becomes better through trial and error. If the experiment fails, just try again!"
