Effective business writing

Synopsis

Good business writing is crucial. People in business don’t have time to re-read documents that are hard to understand. That’s why it’s important that they get the message first time.

Our effective business writing course is for anyone who writes to other people at work. We’ll show you how to manage the jargon, as well as give  you practical advice on writing emails, letters and reports. You'll learn how a little bit of planning can make all the difference. And we'll teach you how to write economically without losing your message.


Outcomes

As a result of attending the course, you will:

  • use techniques for clear, accurate and efficient business writing;
  • plan and structure documents effectively;
  • organise the flow of ideas in paragraphs and sentences;
  • know how to add emphasis and set the right tone; and
  • review your own work effectively.
