THIS COURSE PROVIDES CLEAR, IMPACTFUL AND POWERFUL BUSINESS WRITING TRAINING, ESPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES.

Training Overview

In all business situations—business-to-business , business-to-client and inter-office—writing is the main form of communication.

The skill of writing well is as important as ever. WeTrain’s Advanced Writing Skills For Managers And Executives will ensure that writing—whether in emails, or in the far more complex documents that you and your upper-level colleagues deal with every day—creates a positive and lasting first impression.

The skills and training within the course will help attendees to structure and plan writing, adopt an appropriate tone and format, and use the correct grammar and punctuation.

WeTrain’s style of delivery is interactive, engaging and fun. We encourage participation to make the training dynamic and enjoyable for all attendees.

THE BENEFITS OF ‘ADVANCED WRITING SKILLS FOR MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES’ FOR YOU AND YOUR ORGANISATION

Your senior staff are some of your company’s greatest assets and are essential in achieving your business goals and targets. To do this, they need to be able to communicate efficiently and effectively with their colleagues, customers, partners and suppliers.

Many job functions of managers and supervisors involve written communication. Whether it’s writing reports, memos, job procedures, performance appraisals, or e-mails, writing is a daily job responsibility. Doing it well is a critical to effective management.

Written communications are a reflection of professional image. People judge you by the way you write. Superiors, colleagues, employees, customers, and others form impressions about the type of manager you are from the way you communicate in writing.

WeTrain’s ‘Everyday Business Writing Basics’ program will ensure that your team develops and hones skills to improve written communication with clients and other businesses.

The benefits of taking WeTrain’s course are numerous and specific to each company. However, we commonly receive feedback about these particular benefits:

  • Better communication increases business prospects and improves relationships with new and potential clients.
  • Efficient and effective writing will save time and wasted effort.
  • Fine-tuning your team’s business writing will increase productivity rates and reduces time dealing with misunderstandings.
  • Business writing will ensure your first impression counts—each and every time.
  • When equipped with the skills to write quickly and effectively your team will be less frustrated and be able to collaborate more effectively
  • Attendees will be able to create succinct and compelling internal and external communications.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND ‘ADVANCED WRITING SKILLS FOR MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES’ TRAINING?

Nearly every person in your senior management will need to write at some stage during the working week. Unfortunately, very few people find that writing comes naturally. People from all skill levels benefit from WeTrain’s ADVANCED WRITING SKILLS FOR MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES program. It’s not unusual to find CEOs on the course alongside frontline team members. Senior Team members in the following categories are particularly likely to benefit:

  • Senior team members who write reports, proposals and more

  • Sales professionals
  • Your organisation’s ambassadors
  • All members of management and team leaders

As all our courses are tailor-made for your organisation, we will develop a course to any level and audience. Just let us know your requirements.

HOW IS THE COURSE DELIVERED?

WeTrain’s ADVANCED WRITING SKILLS FOR MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES course is generally presented as an engaging, interactive and fun one-day program, however we can tailor the content to present a shorter session for conferences and events.

To ensure your training is relevant to your organisation and circumstances, we undertake an initial consultation, where we assess the skill level of your attendees, address your desired outcomes and find out valuable information about your company and its current set-up.

Remember, it’s your course, so you get to decide where it takes place. We are happy to teach WeTrain’s Business Writing program either from your workplace or a venue of your choice.

CONVENIENT TRAINING AT YOUR PREMISES OR OFF-SITE

WeTrain can come to your office if you have the right space and facilities to host your training, or we can talk about off-site venues to conduct your training.

WHAT ARE IDEAL COURSE NUMBERS?

Our courses are typically ‘hands-on’, so we suggest keeping numbers to a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 12 people. This allows our trainer to interact with your entire team yet still have enough time to allow for one-to-one interactions.

If your group exceeds 12, we will happily structure your training program to meet the needs of a larger audience. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
