Communication and Presentation Skills
Effective Business Writing

Most professionals are required to write as part of their job; however, they have not usually been trained as writers, nor do they consider themselves to be writers. They often find drafting, writing, and editing a time-consuming, frustrating and even demoralizing experience.

This course is designed to give participants enough information to survive the writing demands of an average day at work without overwhelming them with unnecessary detail. The overriding goal of this practical training program is to help experienced writers create and edit mistake-free business documents with greater clarity, economy and speed.
