BUS 152 Effective Writing in the Workplace




Course Description

Clear written communication is the common currency of the workplace: from daily e-mail demands to reports and proposals. 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.

In a friendly, relaxed workshop environment, you will practise your writing and editing skills, addressing key issues surrounding communication in the workplace.
