The rules you got taught about “good writing” may well be getting in the way of effective, professional communication and documents. That’s always been true in your profession, and COVID19 has really driven this home for all businesses (including your clients). Here’s the latest evidence-based best practice.
Webinar link is included in the confirmation email that is sent upon registration.
This 60 minute webinar will cover:
1. Why “It’s always been done this way” just doesn’t cut it, and why we just keep doing it that way
2. The psychology of reader behaviour – how to be readercentric
3. It’s not about you – to get your desired outcomes, you have to write like a reader
4. How to write reports and emails that are fit for purpose
The presentation will be followed by Q & A.
