Workshop on Business Writing Skills


Clarity in writing saves time, money and energy of every company. Inconsistent, shabby writing can never enhance the image of the company. Millions of rupees are lost due to unclear, verbose reports, emails, memos, minutes of meetings and letters. Time lost in reading and re-reading unclear reports and documents is phenomenal. Writing clear, effective, reader-friendly reports is a skill acquired with training inputs, discipline and right attitude.

Every letter, memo, proposal or report is like an ambassador of your company. Hence this writing has to be effective and thoughtfully written. When we write we have to visualize reader / readers and keep their needs in mind. This is a major step in writing reader friendly reports.

The current trend is to write with the use of simple words, the way we converse. We write to express clearly not to impress people. In fact, a thumb rule in modern writing is that if we have to read a sentence twice to understand the meaning, then we have to rewrite this sentence.


The workshop on writing skills will give the participants the technology and the flavor of fine writing. Moreover, it will stimulate a right mindset to write reader friendly, precise documents.
