About Us

Susan Rooks, the Grammar Goddess

Corporate Trainer | Copyeditor | Cruciverbalist | Blogger | Tiny House Nation Fan

 

My 25 years of experience in administration and management in the private sector, and 20+ years as an international speaker and seminar leader have given me ways to help people master the communication skills they need to succeed. I’ve taught in every kind of organization, from for-profit to government agencies, bringing humor and energy to such topics as American grammar and business writing — two of the most boring topics imaginable.

I founded Grammar Goddess Communication to help business professionals strengthen their communication skills. My three-hour Brush Up on Your Skills programs concentrate on American grammar, business writing, and interpersonal skills. Of course, there are endless possibilities in the interpersonal skills area, including Introduction to DiSC©.

As I wrote in one of my blogs (The Grammar Goddess is NOT Passionate About Grammar), my passion is to help business professionals look and sound as smart as they are. They may have lost their way with American grammar, they may have never had any formal business writing training, or they may not see how language, including body language, can shape others’ perception of them.

And although my basic workbooks are here on the website and available for you with just an email request, I can always customize them to a particular client’s needs.

And I also offer copyediting services for documents ranging from blog posts to business books, from one-page articles to 300-page annual reports.
