DIY writing: good business sense or hidden trap?
By the time we finish school we generally know how to put words on a page, but that doesn’t necessarily mean our words will communicate effectively. Several generations of native English speakers in Australia have never learned the basics of English grammar. There are others who have achieved top marks in English in Year 12 at school but are unable to write a clear and concise email or a well-structured business report. If the writing we learn at school is not teaching us the skills we need for business writing in the workplace, a do it yourself (DIY) approach could be risky business.
