Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 4, 2006
Corporate America spends an estimated $3.1 billion a year teaching employees to write. Why? Because writing skills have gone from bad to worse in recent years, and business is feeling the results.
According to professional speaker and communication expert Helen Wilkie, there's a financial cost to those results.
"Written communication is one of our main tools for getting the work done," says Wilkie. "When we do it badly, it leads to misunderstandings, mistakes that have to be corrected, poor employee relations, lost sales and more." She points out that all this means lost productivity, which costs money.
Wilkie has been conducting in-house writing workshops across North America since 1993. Now, to make her training available to small businesses and individuals, she has launched "The Business Writing Course on CD." The course leads users through a self-paced multi-media program to improve their writing skills right at their own computers.
Says Wilkie, "I'm excited about this product because it lets me help entrepreneurs and people in smaller companies who don't have access to in-house training."
