Business Writing Skills

People who master the competencies of this programme will be able to construct and write clear, concise and accurate business correspondence, complying with and meeting company standards and layout formats.

As writing styles and rules are constantly changing, we will update delegates on the latest standards. We will also focus on writing in a way that prompts the reader to action.
