Writing Dynamics™ Many talented business professionals work hard on their communication skills; they are successful in meetings, and amaze customers and stakeholders with their insightful knowledge about business. But when it comes to sending that all-important follow up letter, email or report; they let themselves down with a cluttered, unstructured and poorly written document. The result – documents get skim-read or, at worst, binned.
The two-day Writing Dynamics™ workshop teaches you a powerful writing system developed by a team of award winning writers that breaks the writing process into three separate areas; planning, drafting and editing. It enables you to produce documents of the highest quality while saving you precious time. The workshop increases the impact of your written word through selecting an appropriate writing strategy, managing the reader’s attention and using innovative techniques to highlight the benefits of the subject for the reader.
