 WHO SHOULD ATTEND

“To get the right word in the right place is rare.” Mark Twain

Good business writing is difficult but realizable, and ultimately, it comes down to whether your writing conveys what your brand represents, and how you want your customers to see you. Good writing skills in business have always been important, but in today’s age of technology, they are even more so. Being able to convey accurately and succinctly what you are trying to say is an invaluable skill, especially when your audience is busy and has limited time. Technology has made everyone a writer, and writing is a very visible skill that should represent your professional goals.

In a world of 140-character tweets and sound bites, what you are saying needs to be both clear and concise. Good business writing gives your company credibility and trustworthiness by inspiring confidence in your audience.
