About the Programme/Event

The temperature of our business partner and customer relationships are often affected by our written communication. Writing clear and accurate business documents is essential for everyone in the workplace.

This interactive talk forms a two-part series to examine the essentials of effective writing, the writer’s tools, common pitfalls, and how to write according to modern writing standards.

Part 1 focuses on fundamental principles of business writing and importance of tone, clarity, conciseness, accuracy, coherence, and credibility in written communication.

Part 2 builds on this to focus on common grammatical errors, editing and proof reading, and on considerations for email and report writing.
