Business Writing Course

The Plain Language Programme

Join our business writing course in Johannesburg and learn to communicate concisely, accurately, and effectively.

How To Write For Business

Your success depends on your ability to turn your thoughts into written and spoken words.

Poor writing results in missed opportunities, lost sales, and a loss of credibility.

Keeping a written record allows us to do the following:

  1. We think about what happened.
  2. We keep track of the facts and statistics.
  3. We protect ourselves.

It also allows us to:

  1. Share information.
  2. Implement ideas.
  3. Archive a permanent record of our interactions.

There is always a resistance to this, because learning business writing skills is hard work. It requires time and discipline.

We make it easier for you with our business writing course, The Plain Language Programme.

Please mail to get the full outline, including costs.

Our business writing course includes:

  1. A grammar refresher
  2. Business writing skills
  3. Business writing templates
  4. Email correspondence and email etiquette
  5. Storytelling for business
  6. Report writing
  7. Writing proposals
  8. Writing for the web

The course is not only for beginners. It is for all business writers, but it does highlight plain language requirements.

We emphasise instructor-student interaction, practical exercises, and intensive feedback.
