(December 17, 2015) As part of our commitment to promoting Women Business Owners, WEConnect International in South Africa held a business writing training course, the primary purpose of which was to equip those present with the skills required to write clear, concise, effective business prose in an efficient and professional manner. It was also intended as a refresher for those with an extant strong background in professional writing.

This short course focused on professional documentation such as emails, letters, reports, tenders, proposals and social media. The training was attended by 24 business women and was facilitated by Koffi Kouakou, a senior lecturer at the Wits School of Governance, where he teaches Strategic Government Communications and Scenario Planning.
