Writing is an important part of most people’s professional lives. This means that being able to communicate a message clearly and concisely is an incredibly important skill – whether that’s when writing reports, emails or any other form of business communications. Poor business writing can lead to frustration, miscommunication and become a real drain on an organisation’s resources.
