Course Description

Effective writing has four characteristics: Clarity, conciseness, attention to detail, and readability. This Online CPE webinar covers two of these important topics in writing that you can benefit from.  

Sprawling sentences can feel overwhelming. Many times it makes it harder for the reader to quickly identify the main point of what you’re trying to communicate. At times, it is also boring. Concise writing helps grab and hold the reader’s attention. It also makes the writing more memorable and impactful for the reader. Moreover, it has been observed that in general, clients and colleagues prefer brevity over verbosity. 

Although paying attention to details seems like an obvious skill, but in technical writing it is tricky. Using fewer words in legal and professional writing is not easy as it sounds. With this skill acquired, you ensure maintaining efficiency, increasing your productivity, and reducing the chances of errors, making your job easier. This is the reason attention to detail is a key skill.

With conciseness and attention to detail skills mastered, your communication will be easy and to the point for your readers, and you will gain the trust on your competency.
