Business Writing Skills

Outline (1 day session)

In business, communication is everything. Whether you’re sending an email, writing a letter, using a blog to attract customers or simply selling your wares via a website, the way you write sends a key message about you and the way you conduct business. Often it’s the first impression potential customers receive, and poorly written text can be extremely off-putting. This one day course will show you how to write formal and friendly communications to send the right message about your business.
