Course description

High-impact business writing course – open course in London, Manchester or Birmingham

This High-impact business writing course will teach you how to write in a way that is clear and effective. Writing is a critical aspect of business – we spend most of the day writing, whether that's instant messages, emails, letters, reports or proposals. And our results depend on how well – and how efficiently – we can do it.

In just one day, this course will help you streamline your writing process and create documents and correspondence that are readable, engaging, effective and logical. This course uses a hands-on learning approach so that delegates can practise new skills in real time.

And rather than the one-size-fits-all approach to writing-skills training, this open course incorporates individual writing assessments to ensure that you are able to maximise your skills and target your weaker areas. Before the course, you can submit a writing sample for confidential analysis and receive analysis that maps out your strengths and weaknesses. You will also receive post-course support via the Emphasis Training helpline. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

This open course is suitable for all those who write in a professional context. This includes every type of document and correspondence you produce at work – emails, letters, reports, proposals, feedback, and so on.

Typical delegates range from recent graduates to chief executives – and delegates of all writing abilities are welcome.
