Practical Guide to Business Writing

Although writing is an important part of working life, few employees receive help with documents or writing guidance. Unclear writing creates confusion, leading to more enquiries for clarification, errors, complaints and also rework. All of these consume valuable company time.

Many feel insecure about their grammar and writing skills which results in tendency to use overly formal phrases that leave the reader with a negative impression of the writer and the company.

This course will help you improve your English writing skills in a business and professional setting.
