Effective Business Writing

Learn to write with style, professionalism and conviction – this one-day workshop will give you the skills and confidence to make the right impact with any type of business document.

It’s not just embarrassing when business writing is confusing, boring and infuriating. Poor written material also wastes valuable time, sends inaccurate messages and projects a negative image of both the writer and of her or his organisation.

Clear, succinct and compelling reports and letters are essential to effective communication, and being able to create them is a vital business skill. Fortunately, effective writing is not a gift that is granted to the elite few who happen to find it easy, but a competence that can be learned like any other.

The aim of this course to help you develop your skills, so that you can convey your message clearly and concisely in writing and make a positive impact on your reader.
