- Correctly use direct, indirect, and persuasive messages.
SCENARIO OPTION #2: Persuasive Memo Document Makeover
Shauna Eckert, Global Business Communications Events Planner, is requesting your help with the Bad News Memo written about corporate health insurance changes.

To meet the Unit 4 assignment requirements, you may choose EITHER the Bad News Memo Document Makeover (Option #1) OR the Persuasive Memo Document Makeover (Option #2).
- Correct the memo using Interoffice memo format (To, From, Subject, Date).
