Lesson Excerpt:
People are bombarded with information nowadays. If you want somebody to take note of a memo, letter, email, fax or report you have written, you need to ensure that the quality of the writing is such that the people it is destined for will feel compelled to read it through. This means you have to bear in mind the needs of the reader, organize the material logically, write concisely and unambiguously and eliminate typing, spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. If you can also write in a lively manner, then that is an added bonus for the readers.

Before embarking on a writing task, think of your reader/s. Ask yourself why you are writing to them (the aim of your writing: informing, persuading, complaining etc.); what you want to tell them. Focusing on your reader/s will also help you determine the style of your writing: should it be formal, casual, technical, personal, objective, serious, or witty?  Your readers’ status will have a bearing on such decisions: are they above or below you in the company hierarchy, are they peers?  Giving consideration to your readers will also help you decide what to include: you should assess what they already know and what you need to tell them.
