In a world of information overload, effective business writing is about getting to the point, quickly. No-one has the time to decipher formal language and overly complex sentences, or the patience to wade through endless waffle. The responsibility is on the writer to tailor their message to the intended reader – to deliver their ideas in a clear, succinct and highly effective manner.
Clear writing requires clear thinking. The problem is that many people think ‘wordsmithing’ every document is a tedious and frivolous waste of time. They don’t appreciate that poor writing can greatly impact personal brand, profile and success – knowing how to create an interesting and intelligent sentence is essential to communicating effectively and setting yourself apart.
The Write Way workshop has the power to transform your written communication overnight. It introduces a range of practical tools and techniques that will enable you to assess your own writing and take simple steps to improve its readability. The program focuses on writing for the business environment (email, proposals, reports, executive summaries) but is applicable to any situation. The beauty is that the concepts and techniques apply equally to them all.
