The 5Cs of Effective Business Writing | with BETTY KAN-SEKINE
“The class is lively and Betty is able to keep everyone engaged.”

“I will recommend my colleagues or friends to attend this course.”

“Very clear, good and helpful materials.”

Have you ever felt the need to choose between writing well and writing fast at work? The ability to put your ideas across accurately and effectively in writing is an important communication skill for every business executive. Sometimes the only exposure you may have to higher management is through your writing. If your email and letters are clear and concise, they convey an impression of someone with a well-organised mind, a person who knows exactly what is needed and how to make it happen. Messages that are vague, disjointed and weak may compromise your chance of being promoted and can tarnish your professional reputation.

This practical workshop is designed to empower you to write for the results you want in the shortest amount of time through a simple, step-by-step approach based on the fundamentals of effective email writing.
