Effective Business Writing
You will gain
Direction, confidence and more effective written documents; writing at work has a purpose, that is to move people to action, whether it is a letter, report or board paper. This practical workshop will support you to identify the audience, write to their needs, express yourself concisely, clearly, persuasively, remove barriers in written communication and gain confidence.
Your organisation will benefit
Writing in the workplace alternates between long winded, time consuming, formal and overly detailed to minimal text, twitter, and abbreviated communication. Either way it is easy to miscommunicate, takes time to write or to correct and does not represent your organisation or your case effectively. Putting constructive business writing skills into action will save time, increase effectiveness and enhance your organisation's reputation. All of these factors improve your chances of success.
