Best Practices in Accounting & Finance Writing

Good writing skills are essential in our jobs. We write more than ever in e-mail, proposals, presentations, faxes and even on our PDAs. The truth is, what we write suggests to the receiver how clearly we understand what we are writing about. It can begin the process of getting the recipient to agree with our points and to get the right work done. The development of writing skills is a key need for professionals at all levels of an organization. Custom version are also available for Audit, IT and Consulting services.
