General business skills are essential in the modern office environment. They are transferable skills, meaning that they can help to improve performance in a wide range of different areas of business activity. For example, although an office administrator may attend a Business Writing course, he or she will be able to use these skills in another occupation such as a secretary or PA role, which can either be a temporary assignment or a change of career.

Why Are Business Skills Important?

You can't do business without business skills!

Business skills are critical for everyone in the organisation, regardless of their position. From knowing how to create clear, succinct, and easy-to-read documents to being able to put together informative, straightforward presentations and deliver them in an effective way, these skills are essential for taking performance to the next level and making sure that work is of the highest standard.

After training, people are always more effective in both productivity and higher quality, giving the company a more productive -- and happier -- workforce.
