COURSE OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVE

How To Connect Your Readers With The Right Messages

Communication is an important aspect of a business organisation and it deserves proper handling; for that reason, it is important to understand how people relate and talk to one another.
Most business communication is of a non-verbal type such as e-mails or letters with no spoken words or feedback and body language to fall back on. Hence, this course is designed to provide participants with the fundamental concepts of modern business writing so that the message will create a positive response from the intended audience.
