    Expert communicators say that the importance of clear, concise communication in business cannot be over-emphasised.  But, don’t take anyone’s word for it, test things for yourself.   Take a piece of communication that you have written and assess its effectiveness in terms of its composition by asking yourself whether it is written with accuracy and clarity, is concise and most importantly, whether it conveys the intended message.  You will notice that business writing is both an art and a science where the evidence speaks for itself.

    Jonathan Baloyi – Dariel Solutions

    ‘I learnt how to differentiate between good and bad emails and how to write professional emails.  Learning about the structure of the email really went well for me and the words appropriate for an email.  The best thing about this course was getting to know that I have been writing bad emails without realizing that I was wrong.’
