The Write Way

£19.00

Price is per online user of this course, excluding 20% VAT. You pay £22.80 per user.

Only when your people write professionally will your organisation project a professional image.

E-mails, letters, reports, proposals – whatever your managers and staff write, it has to be clear, properly structured, well phrased, and free from errors. If not, the message is lost, misunderstandings occur, and the organisation’s credibility suffers. It is not difficult, however to achieve good writing.
