The Effective Business Writing Skills training course focusses on how to create business documents that say what you mean and achieve the results you want. This training not only covers the basics of how to improve your writing skills but also how to achieve the right result from your written correspondence. The purpose of this training course is to provide people with the skills to communicate accurately and effectively to their readers in business English. The training course focuses on using correct language and grammar as well as pointing out common language mistakes that are often made and deals with electronic and non-electronic written communication.
Business writing should be precise and succinct rather than creative; it stresses specificity and accuracy. Writing in a business environment requires writing with a unique purpose because you must assume that your audience has limited time in which to read it and is likely just to skim the document. Your readers have an interest in what you say insofar as it affects their working world. They want to know the “bottom line”: the point you are making about a situation or problem and how they should respond.
Delegates will be requested to bring copies of recent E-Mails, Business Reports and Letters to the Training Session for these to be discussed, evaluated and if needed improved upon based on the Learnings from this training.
The course will address frequently asked questions such as:
- What is business writing?
- How can I write more effectively?
- Do you understand your audience?
- What is proper e-mail etiquette?
- How can I explain my ideas clearly in writing?
- How can I improve my writing style?
