Business Writing Courses that aim to improve executive writing skills at every level of business and government are essential. In today’s fast-moving world where time and attention are at a premium the ability to write clearly, concisely and persuasively is vital. Managers, executives and public sector workers at all levels often find difficulty in their business writing: frequently believing they should write in a more formal style. Almost always the formal style means a lot more words and a lot less understanding. In business and executive writing simplicity is crucial: the ability to convey instant understanding using the least number of words.
