Reports, emails, business plans, meeting minutes, journal articles, reviews, speeches and presentations: business writers have to write any or all of these, and write them well. Good business writing saves time, money and gives a positive and professional impression of you and your organisation - while poor written communications cause problems ranging from irritation through to complete project failure. But writing effectively for work is not a mysterious gift; it's a skill that can be learned....
Very easy to listen to, with lots of resources and exercises to try in the accompanying pdf. I was mainly interested in learning how to write better reports and how to follow the principles of plain English. Jane's practical guidance on this is great - simple & clear - but she also covers all the important points to bear in mind when writing emails, letters, minutes, memos etc. The short section on grammar and punctuation not only helps you get the apostrophes in the right place: it also gives reliable answers to many of those tricky questions (its/it's, the team is/the team are, etc) which so often catch us out. Well worth buying.
