Better Business Writing Seminar

The Better Business Writing training course is available at the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness Pitman Training Centres.

Most people, even if they are not involved in business, have probably written some form of business communication at one time. This may have been a letter of complaint to a company or a letter to the bank manager asking for an overdraft. Whatever the reason or type of communication, business writing is something that we are all involved in at some point in our lives. It is therefore important that we know what it is, how to do it and how to do it well.

Course Duration: 1 Day

Accounting

Upon successful completion of this one day workshop you will be able to:

  • Identify the correct use of grammar, punctuation and spelling in business writing.
  • Reduce the amount you write without reducing the impact of the message.
  • Write in a more active way that makes your writing easier to read and to understand.
  • Use more positive language in your business writing.
  • Avoid writing traps such as clichés, jargon, condescension and sexism.
  • Identify a structure and style of writing that keeps your audience in mind and has a clear purpose.
  • Create a well laid out letter that is easy to read.
  • Write letters that deal with various types of situations.
  • Understand what graphs and charts to use when presenting data and when you use them.

This course is designed for you to:

  • Learn basics of grammar, spelling and punctuation as they apply to business writing.
  • Express yourself more powerfully using plain English.
  • Identify and use the appropriate tone when writing business documents.
  • Develop techniques for quickly creating outlines and structures for business documents.
