Professional Writing

Our professional writing skills program prepares you to write purposefully at a standard that appeals to the respective recipient. The Professional Writing Master Class will help participants understand the keys to successful written communication and put those skills to the test.

The Institute understands that there are different writing tones for different scenarios and purposes. Our Master Class programme looks into the various discourse used by professionals and specialists to communicate and transfer information and knowledge. There are as many specialised languages as there are professions. This is what has usually been known as Languages for Specific Purposes (LSP)

In both verbal and written communication, pay attention to the tone you set through the words you choose. You may believe that you are being persuasive, but your use of language may quickly alienate your reader. You can provide support for your particular point of view by carefully selecting an appropriate tone.
