Effective Business Writing

All business documents should be understood on the first read and interpreted with the tone intended. If you must re-read a passage to understand it, then the author has failed. When you write clear, concise and compelling documents you will be more influential with the reader thereby prompting their attention and action. This highly interactive business writing course builds the skills to quickly write crisp and logical business documents.
