Business Writing Skills

“Value your writing as much as your clients do”

Your written materials, from your business plan to your marketing, are often the first encounter a person has with your company. It is therefore important to make sure that your writing is clear, and that it is relevant. Technology has made everyone in the workplace a writer, and writing is a highly visible skill. When you send an email or other written communication, it is out there for people to see. It reflects on you and, if you are an administrative professional, it also reflects on your boss, so it’s essential to get it right.
