Business Writing Portfolio

Reflection

Business writing is important with a company to ensure effective communication to all individuals involved. I write business letters all day long and implement these techniques on a daily basis but I often use the wrong type of communication internally. It is important to consider your reader when composing your communication and what type of information is necessary to convey to your readers. This class has helped me to improve the writing I do every day and communicate effectively with all those that I work with. Knowing what information each group of individuals needs has helped me to improve my communication in all aspects of work and academically. [pic]
