Business Writing Skills – Stop Being a Robot

Business writing isn’t just reports and proposals. It isn’t just the ‘big’, ‘long’ stuff. It’s every email, document, and message you send for professional purposes. But the rules of writing have changed over the last few years – do you know the new ‘global best practices’?

This course is about learning to craft business messages with confidence, so that readers understand, accept and respond to you.

It covers using the appropriate wording, level of formality, effective phrases, message structure, and even tact and diplomacy. We’ll look at email (subject lines, greetings and sign-offs); jargon; saying ‘No’; editing your own writing; and even basic message strategy.

Why attend Tiffany’s business writing workshop?

Because your reputation depends on it. And because the rules have changed, so you need a refresher. If you’re currently using any of these evil words or phrases:

  • Yours sincerely
  • Peruse
  • Herewith
  • Please find
  • I hope you are well
