About the Course
A recent Radicati Group survey shows in 2013 there are over 2.4 billion email users worldwide, growing to over 2.7 billion by year-end 2017, including both business and consumer users.
This highlights the point that emails are a huge and vital part of business communications.......but;
How effective are YOUR communications?
Do people respond to your emails in the way you expect them to? Or do they seem to ignore your communications, or miss important information?
Do they even open your emails?
Are you making the best possible impression with your business communications?
Knowing how to write effectively is a vital skill in the business world today, and one that unfortunately many do not possess, especially in Asia.
When composing a business communications, there are some simple rules that can be followed to ensure you make a positive impression, and get the results you want through a systematic approach.
In my former career I was communicating with senior members of Fortune 500 companies on a daily basis, and on any given day I had anything up to 200-300 emails and reports of all kind to address.
What most people do not realise is that knowing how to communicate in written form effectively can hugely contribute to your career - positively OR negatively, for example:
- How your manager and clients perceive you based on your written communication style and content
- If/how you clarify work related matters effectively by email
- If you formally keep record of important conversations and outcomes
- If you are effectively requesting important outputs internal to the organisation or externally
- How you are giving feedback/updates to colleagues, subordinates, managers and clients
