Product Description

Business Writing Skills

To be successful at any level in business it is necessary to write well. People need to be able to inform and persuade others; to relay information about their products, solutions, views and recommendations. On screen and on paper the skills of clear, relevant and punchy expression are essential to your company image.

 

Every email, every document and every report should be efficient and instantly understood. However, without the right training many people are unsure of themselves when they sit down to write.

 

Writers must be able to get their message across clearly, without misunderstanding or confusion. Those who write well have learned that there are distinct steps in the process of moving from the blank page to the finished document.

 

These high impact, practical business writing courses takes your people through those same steps. Participants learn how to organise their thinking, marshall their ideas and structure their work. They discover new ways to write with conviction and impact. They improve their ability to hold the reader’s attention. They learn to persuade and to motivate. And above all they learn to save time.

 

The business writing course highlights the new reader-centred reality of business writing and is suitable for all who are required to communicate with the written word.

 

“Deborah was enthusiastic and kept the interest of the group. Everyone had the opportunity to participate and make comments, give feedback etc. The course was structured and definitely provided me with an action plan to improve my writing immediately when I return to the office.” – TR, PA, Q’Straint
