Why you need Speedwriting

The days of, “Dear sir, thank you for your letter of…” may have long gone, taking shorthand with them, but the need to write fast in a variety of situations remains.  Whether it’s minuting a meeting, taking a telephone message, noting instructions or note-taking in an interview, the ability to write quickly in a form that can easily be read back is invaluable.

Why is it good

The speedwriting system is entirely practical, learning in small stages then practised, developing skill and confidence as the course progresses.   Speed is developed through the structured implementation through use in the workplace.
