c)     Produce a leaflet, which is aimed at the staff of the business, telling them about the financial performance of the business or part of the business. The majority of the staff do not have any financial knowledge (P2)

d)     Using the same organisation or any other organisation of your choice, produce a corporate communication such as an advert, poster or leaflet communicating information about the business or one of its products or services. Your proposed audience will be the businesses customers and potential customers (P3)
