Why are writing skills important in the workplace?
Good writing skills are a key asset at every stage of your career, from the moment you write your very first cover letter and resume/CV until your retirement party. This is especially true for administrative professionals who are responsible for a significant amount of written communication on a daily basis. You don’t have to be a published author or hold a degree in comparative literature to be a skilled writer. Sound written communication is advantageous for ambitious administrative professionals at all levels and across a wide range of industries.
Why is Literature so important and how does it affect your future?
Literature helps us understand and make sense of the world around us. Through literature, we explore the human condition and analyze how and why people think the way they think and feel the way they feel. Literature enables us to develop our minds analytically and promotes open minds. We see the world through the eyes of different writers from different cultures and in turn learn the ways to deal with things happening around us. Without literature, we lack insight and understanding of human nature.
Why should education be a top priority?
First, education empowers people and transforms lives. None of us here could ever imagine what our lives and those of our children would be without education. Education gives people hope, confidence and dignity. It equips them with knowledge and skills to escape poverty. It saves lives and reduces the spread of preventable diseases. Second, education fosters economic growth. Every dollar spent in quality education generates strong positive returns for our global economy. With unemployment rising so dramatically, we need, more than ever, to invest in relevant education. Many jobseekers do not have the skills that new jobs need. Third, education is the foundation for a more peaceful and sustainable future. By influencing people’s attitudes and behaviours, education is a key channel for better mutual understanding, tolerance and respect for each other and our planet.
