Course Description

Business communication, whether written or spoken, is at the centre of all business transactions and engagements. Yet the ability to communicate effectively is becoming an increasingly rare skill especially among the younger generation of our workforce, no thanks to "freestyle" SMS messaging, and falling educational standards.  

This presents new challenges in professional business communication and negotiating situations. The result may include lost revenue and interpersonal conflicts. The problem is so endemic that it in some companies quality assurance gate-keepers are created to review out-going communications. But because the gate-keeper can only do so much, many leading organizations are exposing their employees to professional training in business communication and negotiating skills to enhance overall organizational development strategy. 

This 3-day comprehensive course teaches participants to express themselves clearly and to the point in all forms of business communications and negotiations.
