This intensive and practical two-hour online course gives you the skills and techniques to make writing jobs easier – enabling you to write with greater speed, confidence and results. The course will be run online using Zoom.
We start by looking at where business writing goes wrong, discovering the mistakes to avoid (not grammatical ones) and introduce you to the tricks used by professional writers. Then we look in detail at how to write winning reports/proposals. This includes topics such as: how and where to start, the essentials of effective writing, and how to catch the attention of – and win over – your readers.
By the end of this session you will learn about:
