Response to the question

In summary, the report has detailed and in-detailed parts. If all the sections were if the same detailed level, this would be gain high marks. The first opening sentence is slightly in-correct. As it mentions how internal communication are customer's. This is in-correct, as there are employee's. This should be corrected within the report, to gain high marks. The section 'Non Verbal Communication' does't really say what this is. Instead, the report says that this is something that employees can use to asses how consumer's are feeling. However this doesn't explain what this actually is. This would need to be re-written and placed in the report. On the flip side, the section 'Written Communication' is quite good and could acquire high marks with a slight improvement with the detail.

Level of analysis

The section 'Verbal Communication' is quite good. However one additional drawback, could be the difficultly of recording the message and re-listing to this, as this requires time to listen to all of the message.

Quality of writing

Though-out the report, there is no screenshot of the Barclay's website. The report uses the case study of Barclay's, and by proving a screenshot this would allow the examiner to visualize the report.
