Effective Business Writing – Alice Springs CDU

Effective Business Writing

Charles Darwin University, in partnership with the Australian Institute of Management has appointed Barbara Clifford to deliver short courses designed and owned by the Australian Institute of Management..

Part of being an effective communicator, is being able to professionally communicate your ideas in the written word.

If you are sending emails at work then you are writing for business.  Each day that we send an email is another opportunity to practice the art of professional business writing, but are you effective?

Bad habits and sloppy writing can jeopardise your communication objectives.  Too often we fall into the habit of writing the same way for every different platform, but we need to adapt our language, style and layout to meet the needs of the audience.  In this comprehensive 2 days of professional development training, you’ll learn how to enhance your professional persona through more effective business writing.

Effective business writing should trigger an outcome, whether it be to act, inform or change the opinion of the reader. Ineffective writing will cause the reader to become confused, disengaged or to act in a manner that is counter-productive.

You run the risk of reducing your professional image and standards of service by ineffective writing.  Baddly written emails, proposal and reports can create a poor image and be coounter productive to your message.  Ineffective communication can become costly with wasted time and misunderstandings.  The long term impact can reduce clients or members, and damage the integrity of your business or organisation.
