Writing for Business
The objective of this practical one-day course is to improve your skills in writing emails, letters, proposals and reports.
Too much business writing is over-formal, stilted and riddled with jargon. Your documents should actually be business-like and precise.
During this seminar you will learn principles of good writing. You will practise writing clearly, logically and at the appropriate length, working towards real letters, proposals, reports or presentations you are planning to make.
By the end of the session you will know how to:
- Get your writing started
- Organise your ideas more efficiently
- Structure simple documents
- Express your ideas clearly, simply and precisely
- Comply with your house style
- Approach writing with fresh enthusiasm
- Improve a current example of your own work
- Target the reader with purpose
- Plan the structure
- Write – with style
- Polish and present
- Getting started – the blank page
- Booklist and resources
Writing is easy; all you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until the drops of blood form on your forehead.Gene Fowler
