  • For e.g. 'Synergies' were created or Integration was ‘seamless’ but 'How?'
  • Write persuasively
  • Include supporting evidence
  • Ensure the links you submit are accessible
  • Don't forget to take a thumbs up from your client
  • PROOFREAD & ensure there are no spelling and grammatical errors.
