Course Description

From daily email demands to reports and proposals, clear written communication is the common currency of the workplace. Invariably, this communication takes place within a frenetic, fast-paced environment. Many in the workforce find their communication demands increasing exponentially, yet have no in-house support. This workshop is designed to provide that support. In a friendly, relaxed workshop environment, you will practise your writing and editing skills, addressing key issues surrounding communication in the workplace.
