Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook?


Are you going to adopt a modern “Essentials” textbook with extensive integration of mobile communication in every chapter, or are you going to saddle your students with a commonly adopted “Essentials” text that is stuck in the last decade?


Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:


Because of complacency and a lack of knowledge about the topic, most business communication textbook authors are ignoring the mobile revolution. In fact, they’re pretending that it doesn’t even exist.


In light of these facts, are your students being served well? There is one team that’s always on the cutting edge: Bovee and Thill. The fact they are the only business communication textbook authors currently writing about mobile tells you everything you need to know about which author team conscientiously revises its books and keeps them current. (Bovee and Thill were also the first authors to discuss social media and digital communication in their texts.)


Adopt the only modern "Essentials" text: Business Communications Essentials by Bovee and Thill.


See how your text compares to Business Communication Essentials with this interactive checklist.

Never Give A Boring Presentation Again

Never Give A Boring Presentation Again | Teaching Business Presentations in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
The experience of sitting through a truly terrible presentation is nearly universal. The dozens of identically-themed PowerPoint slides stacked with text, the useless handouts, the tense, miserable minutes of silence during the time allotted for Q&A--presentations rarely energize a team or allow the speaker to fully display the depth of their knowledge.Most people have attended one of these monstrosities and, whether anyone would willingly admit it or not, quite a few of us have likely also given one of these anemic performances.So how can you ensure you never find yourself flailing while packed room blinks back at you?

Why Both Stories and a Storyline Are Important for Your Presentations | Teaching Business Presentations in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

A lot of people are talking about telling stories during a presentation. Why is that?


Stories are

  1. A powerful way to evoke emotions, which is important because people remember emotionally-charged experiences better and longer
  2. An age-old way of making a topic interesting, so the audience pays more attention
  3. An alternate way to make your point, helping people to understand better

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

It is the consequence of our curiosity (or anxiety) about what could be waiting for us: a text, a voicemail, a post – a message of any kind. It is more habit than disinterest. It is what draws us away from the presenter to our mobile devices." . . .
