About This Workshop

Do you want to know the secret to writing clearly and concisely that guarantees a timely and favourable response?

Whether you’re communicating with colleagues or pitching an idea to an external client, your success depends on your ability to tailor and deliver your message to various audiences in the right way. This is especially crucial when the person on the receiving end is a senior stakeholder.

Despite being drowned in technology, writing remains an essential skill for the modern workplace and with the right techniques you can avoid long emails that get no responses and instead, deliver clear and concise messages that guarantee concrete follow-up actions.

In this workshop, Instructor Anser Aly draws upon his varied global experience across multiple Fortune 500 companies to share tips on how to write effectively to create influence and impact in the workplace.

You will learn how to draft messages that will be well-received by senior stakeholders and peers alike. You will also gain some very practical tips that will help you save time and ensure that you have the reader’s attention from start to end.

Takeaways

  • How to guarantee that your written communication evokes a response and is not missed or ignored
  • How to tailor and deliver your message to a culturally varied audience in the most effective way and get them to take the action you desire, regardless of the medium you use (email, powerpoint, whatsapp, report writing…)
  • How to dial up the effectiveness of your written reminders by learning the politest yet most effective technique to remind (without offending or sounding too direct)
  • Opportunity to practice the techniques taught during the workshop
