Effective Business Writing

Cost: $1,650.00

Overview

When questioned about writing skills, one generally responds that their writing is "good enough". In business though, "good enough" is unacceptable. An opinion is formed of you from your writing; if it is sloppy, one may assume that you are sloppy; if your writing fails to convince your reader that they should care about your message, they won't care. At worst, a decision may be made that you are not worth doing business with, because of your writing.

So, in this workshop, we aim to help you with your writing so that it gets noticed, is easy to understand, and does not waste your reader's time. The good news is, that good writing is not innate; it is a skill that you cultivate, and it is with this in mind that, over the next two days, we begin to develop your writing skills.
