BUSINESS WRITING SKILLS

This full day practical business writing course encourages you to make the reader the central focus of all your business writing. In addition, the workshop allows you to reflect on your emails and letters and make some key changes to structure, grammar and punctuation in order to communicate with greater clarity.


Business writing has always been a challenge because it’s one way. You, the writer, know what you want your emails and messages to communicate, but your reader often has a different perception! As social distancing forces us to rely even more on the written channel, we need to ensure that our written messages are not just possible to understand but impossible to misunderstand!

This practical business-writing course delivered over two sessions helps you make the reader the central focus of all your business writing. In addition, personalised facilitator feedback during and between sessions will assist you to make key changes to your structure, grammar and punctuation so you write efficiently and with clarity.

  • Sentence and paragraph construction
  • Plain English
