Writing it Right – Why the Words and Format Matter in Business
(Vocus) July 27, 2009
The emergence of email, PowerPoint, LinkedIn and even Twitter increases not decreases the power of the written word. Writing for these communication vehicles reveals so much about writer and his or her business skills – educational background, pride in work and business expertise. Business people who can write clearly and concisely have a competitive edge over those who struggle.
Unfortunately many people never learned how to write to communicate in school and can't afford to hire a writer to write their correspondence. They are afraid to write a letter (or email or memo) for fear of saying it badly. For many people writing is just below public speaking in terms of the fear it generates, yet being able to communicate clearly and effectively is absolutely essential skill whether it is an email, memo or report.
