Aspects of Business Communication
Georgeta Ghiga
ISBN: 973-9463-55-x
Pag: 110
 
 



Business communication is equally complex and attractive.



.......



Selling and buying things, promoting products and services, writing to partners, negotiating bank loans, speaking or writing to potential employers, talking with superiors and subordinates, are but few situations in which those involved can easily find out how important the ability to communicate is.



Aspects of Business Communication is meant to offer the reader the opportunity to get familiar with specific knowledge with reference to both written and oral communication in business.



.....



With all its examples, descriptions and letter samples, the book is intended to be a useful instrument for investigating business communication, both theoretically and in a practical perspective.
