Introduction

Business letters and documents are often incomprehensible to the average reader. And even the academically astute often find themselves getting annoyed at unnecessarily complex texts. If customers are unsure of what to do with a letter or email, or are unsure of its content, this results in unnecessary costs for your organisation, with your department being inundated with questions, phone calls, and emails. Or your customer will simply not do what you expect him or her to. All this leads to a lot of wasted time and money, when this really need not be the case.

Better comprehension of written correspondence

Studies have shown that only a small percentage of customers who receive letters from companies actually understand all of their content or truly process the information given, much to their annoyance. The relevant organisations then are forced to restate their intentions. Writing in simple, coherent language is not difficult and results in 90% of people being able to properly comprehend your meaning. Our “coherent writing” training sessions teach you how to write in an accessible and customer-friendly style: offering personalised advice on how to adapt your own writing style teaching you how to write more coherently and thus be more effective within a short period of time
