The ability to communicate is an important skill. Many of today’s interpersonal communication take place through writing. Targeted, concise and persuasive text can make all the difference when convincing someone of your ideas, services or products. Achieving results through proposals, reports, technical texts, emails, memos, etc., depends on your ability to successfully persuade your readers and help them understand and act on your ideas.

This comprehensive course focuses on all aspects of writing business texts, documents, reports, etc., used regularly in most jobs and professions. It covers the entire life cycle of writing, starting from understanding the audience, collecting material, planning the structure, organising, writing, styling, presentation and the general strategy required to make the text more convincing and targeted.

The course contains a variety of detailed sessions, each focusing on different aspects of this life cycle. Each session provides step-by-step guidelines on how to approach the subject and is followed by exercises where delegates can immediately practice the skill.

Research shows that the best way to learn is by example. All sessions contain specific examples showing precisely how recommended guidelines can be implemented. Good and bad text examples are carefully constructed to show what works and what doesn't, so delegates can quickly apply those guidelines while participating in training exercises and later to real-world scenarios.
