Assignment 02: Analysis of Persuasive Document
Thank you for working with me to address the communication issues between Oralee’s offices in Singapore and Dallas. The conference call with you and status reports from the operations and marketing teams will allow the workforce in Singapore to be better aligned with the headquarters in Dallas and facilitate inter-company learning.
