MBC Business Writing Improvement Workshop
"A work is perfectly finished only when nothing can be added to it and nothing taken away."
– Joseph Joubert, writer
Consider this: A high percentage of your daily business communication is done through writing. This includes proposals, reports, correspondence with customers and employees, right down to the emails that might make up the bulk of everyday business communication.
While the ideal form of communication is face to face, that option isn’t always or even usually, available. Therefore, the critical importance of communicating with absolute clarity in writing is paramount in business.
It pays to always be improving your company’s overall writing skills. Let us help you do that quickly, easily, and efficiently.
