Brush Up Your English! – Business Writing Training Course Outline

In this world of text and emails does anyone really care if we make the odd grammatical mistake or write rambling sentences with little or no punctuation?

Well, actually yes. Lots of people do! Bad grammar and punctuation make even the simplest business writing harder to read. Grammatical mistakes can cause your colleagues, boss and clients to perceive you as less bright than you actually are!

Training in correct grammar and punctuation is essential for business writing if clients or any stakeholders might read your documents - mistakes reflect badly on the entire company, with the public very quick to mock you on social media.

It doesn't matter whether you are writing an email, a letter or a report - good business grammar is going to help you reach your audience and get the result you want - without annoying them with simple mistakes. On this business grammar course, you will learn how to overcome some of the most common grammar challenges and how to communicate in an effective and professional way.
