During this hands-on course participants will develop their writing skills through a combination of practical work allied with theoretical learning, broken down into easy-to-absorb sections that build up over the 3-day course. Whether you are writing to clients or to a variety of internal audiences, your writing style and content are vitally important and will make the difference between your message being a clear, efficient targeted success and a total failure.
