Professional Business Writing and Communication: Introduction

Writing in general is fast becoming a lost art. However in business, people still need to write, whether it is an email or a proposal. Our business writing course aims to give participants an “extra edge” when it comes to writing and we will discuss topics such as grammar and punctuation.

The second part of the course covers proposal writing, a professional looking proposal will go far to establishing credibility and getting job approval. A proposal is a sales pitch for your product or service. It outlines a problem that the customer has and points out a product or service as a solution.

The third module focus on communication strategies. Topics covered include: listening, asking questions, communicating verbally and non-verbally and barriers to effective communication. We move on to discuss key skills such as pitch and tone and then we focus on non-verbal communication (body language).
