Why Attend This Training

As a global business executive, you need to master the art of effective business writing. You need to develop and improve your ability to write clearly and effectively for different business contexts. In the global business environment, you may also be writing to readers from different countries and nationalities. Writing in Standard English is therefore critical for business executives to project professionalism, achieve your business purpose, and maximise customer satisfaction.

This is an interactive 2-day workshop designed for executives who are able to speak and understand English but who may often find business writing in English quite challenging. One of such challenges is that the non-native English executives often think in their native language structures but have to write in English for a global audience. Therefore, this workshop will focus on helping these executives to address their business writing gaps, and equip them with practical knowledge and techniques to help them improve the standard and clarity of their business writing.
