Professional and business writing courses

Everyone can become a better writer

Imagine if everyone in your organisation wrote clearly, concisely and more persuasively.

It would change everything.

I provide writing training for a wide range of staff – whether they’re in sales, admin, HR, management or marketing.

The training can be customised to suit you, whether you need training on writing:

  • reports
  • memos
  • briefs
  • emails
  • proposals
  • business letters.

 

What will participants learn?

These writing workshops are practical and designed to teach participants skills and techniques that they can immediately put into practice in their day-to-day jobs.

More specifically, participants will learn how to:

  • write with the audience in mind
  • plan – and clarify – what they need to write
  • write clearly and concisely
  • edit and proofread their own writing
  • use plain English to make technical or complex information easy to read
  • format copy to improve readability.

The workshop will be customised to suit you – I can even create exercises based on your own content (if you choose).

The length of the course varies from half a day to three days, depending on your needs.

I can teach this workshop at your office anywhere in Australia.

Who am I?

I’m a former Sydney Morning Herald editor and journalist with over 20 years of writing experience.

After leaving journalism, I then worked with a wide range of organisations where I had to write and edit everything from tenders and sales proposals to board papers and executive reports. In other words, I understand where your employees are coming from.

In addition to lecturing in communications at UTS, I also have over a decade’s experience in teaching writing courses for organisations – and am passionate about seeing people improve their writing skills.
