Writing to inform

This course develops the essential skills needed in professional business communication. It is suitable for anyone who needs to communicate factual information to clients or customers, suppliers or colleagues.

For example, you may need to write:

  • A description of different products or services
  • A summary of a meeting to confirm your understanding
  • A progress report on a project you’re currently managing
  • An incident report describing a recent event, the consequences and any actions that were taken as a result
  • An appraisal or review of a person, product or service.

What all these types of writing have in common is that they are objective pieces of writing, stating facts and (relatively) devoid of emotion. Your intention is usually to convince the person reading your work that it is factually accurate and that you are competent and reliable.

Whether you are writing a letter, an email or a report, the prime purpose remains the same – to inform.
