Effective Business Writing


All business activities require a form of oral, or written communication. Without clear, and effective communication parameters, it may be challenging to convey ideas, and instructions to intended recipients. A misunderstood e-mail is all it takes to hinder proper execution of deliverables within an organization.

This two-day program aims to equip learners with effective writing skills, by enabling them to discover various ways of conveying written communications in the most effective manner.
