WHY YOU MUST PARTICIPATE

Communication is very critical to success in all areas. One thing that is very critical to effective communication is proficient application of language. Mastery of English Language has become more important in business relationships today, especially that it is the showroom of one’s level of intelligence as a first verbal point of contact.

 

English, which is spoken by about one billion people and is most widely spoken around the world, is the language of diplomacy, finance, science, technology and business. So mastering communication allows you to effectively reach, sell and relate with a worldwide audience of customers for commerce. It will also help you enhance your career as an individual. In the business world, the bottomline is money, and communicating well saves – and makes – it.

 

It is a truism that organisations and individuals are as good as the quality of their writing. Almost all individuals and organisations lay claim to good writing. But more often than not, poor grammar and jargon-infested writing are prevalent in their writing. In Nigeria for instance, we are masters at wrongly redeploying meanings of existing words and terms of English Language and even justifying the existence of Nigerian English whenever we are caught in the cobweb of grammatical errors or misapplication of English language.

 

To entrench a corporate culture of effective writing, organisations need to have regular language and communication training. They also need to have a writing style guide book as part of their corporate culture of excellence and consistency. This is because the practice of good, collaborative writing makes the difference between great business and bad business — a sale or no sale.
