Financial professionals realize that demonstrating mastery is not limited to preparing and presenting meeting briefings and firing off summary emails on business issues. Writing proficiency emerges from their ability to craft operational and financial inquiries, fiscal analyses, revenue forecasts, internal justifications, appropriation requests, client proposals, business cases, and a whole host of other financial documents depending on their organizational responsibilities. Their formal training in these skills has been limited to academic contexts, and their company may not necessarily use standardized methods for composing these diverse documents. Thus, specialized training in financial business writing ensures that financial professionals write documents which express their organizational objectives and business purposes.
Poor writing causes corporations to spend billions of dollars annually on remedial training.
