This fast-paced interactive one-day course will help you to use language well when you write, so that your letters, email and reports achieve the right response from your readers. 

You will learn how to:

  • Use language that conveys a positive and definite impression of you and your organization.
  • Structure your sentences and paragraphs coherently, so that every message you write has a logical flow.
  • Identify and focus on the information your reader must have to fully understand your message and respond appropriately.
  • Omit irrelevant details and remove expressions that make your communications ponderous and wordy.
  • Use punctuation appropriately.
  • Write abbreviations, acronyms and numbers correctly.
  • Apply relevant “grammar rules” and understand how some of the traditional rules have changed in today’s business writing.  
You will have opportunities to apply the techniques you learn and receive feedback from the course facilitator. You will also be able to email a real-work document you write following the course, for further evaluation by the facilitator.
