Business English Writing Skills – EY Academy of Business

Business English Writing Skills

A unique opportunity to gain individualised guidance and feedback from our expert tutor on the writing skills you need in your daily working life. Practise your writing skills in a small-group setting (up to 10 participants per workshop), work on the skills that matter to you!

 

This two-day practical and interactive workshop will provide you with real skills in effective business communication. The focus will be on your individual needs, enabling you to improve your work-related documents.

Business people who have to communicate in English, especially in writing, but perhaps have not considered the aspects of good writing in English.

 

This workshop will be of interest to all professionals who are looking to be more effective with their writing in English.

Objectives

  • To encourage participants to develop a better awareness of style to help them become aware of their own strengths and weaknesses;
  • To assist participants in gaining an understanding of what makes successful writing;
  • To give participants the ability to produce professional, clear, effective documents more quickly.

Methodology

Participants are encouraged to look at their own written work and improve their techniques in terms of expression, tone, formality, style and accuracy.

Their writing skills will be developed through a series of written tasks, feedback and opportunities to revise and improve their output. However, in the case of larger groups, feedback may not be effectively given to all participants due to the size of the group and the short duration of the course.

Outcomes

  • Understand the elements of effective writing;
  • Have a better awareness of own individual problems and therefore be able to self-correct and write more accurately;
  • Be able to produce more effective, professional documents;
  • Have increased confidence and therefore be able to write emails and other business documents more quickly.
