Business Style of Writing

 

Content is king in business communication – and has even evolved into its own style of writing. Learn how the business style of writing enables writers and readers to understand each other without ambiguity. Very little grammar will be discussed, because business communication style simplifies grammar. The information is also highly relevant to people doing technical writing.
