A simplified course that targets areas of business writing which most of us tend to oversee. In this era of digitalisation and information overload, this back to basics method was really refreshing.

This course was short, poignant and mindful of our busy lives, while teaching us all how to be more impactful in our writing. This is just what I was looking for to give me an extra edge at work!

The course is extremely useful for business writing and it can be also applied in everyday life. Great content and resources to enhance the learning experience.

Unfortunately, regarding the resources some links are no longer available. For example, in Module 3 Resources the link for "A Guide to Writing an Effective Executive Summary" is no longer available and also there is the error 404 that page not found for "How to Write a Business Case ― 4 Steps to a Perfect Business Case Template". Last but not least, in Module 4 Resources the link for “Business Writing Tips” is no longer available.

Good information for anyone writing communications professionally. However, sometimes the course is a bit pedantic and simplified. While they refer to some sources, they do not explain why their writing guidelines are the most effective at what they aim to achieve, nor do they give any evidence for it (e.g. linguistic studies).
