In today’s fast-moving world, it’s imperative for your writing to stand out from the crowd – and communicate your intended message the first time. Clear and engaging prose not only achieves results, but also creates an impression that is professional, knowledgeable and powerful.
IPAA Victoria’s renowned half-day writing workshop provides best-practice advice and guidance based on the guidelines in the Australian Government’s Style manual. Participants will examine and practise business writing strategies and processes that can be applied to emails, letters, faxes or short reports – recognising what public sector leaders are looking for in a well-written document.
