Event Details

‘Grammar Review and Business Writing’ by Inquirer Academy will be held on January 28 at the Inquirer Academy Building


Effective writing is indeed an essential skill in the workplace since much of day-to-day business communication is made through e-mails, reports, memos, or proposals in order to present a truly professional and competent image. It also helps avoid misunderstandings that can affect business revenue and performance.  However, writing correctly can often be a neglected skill especially when employees jump into it carelessly and rapidly.
