Communication skills are vital in any industry – sourcing information and writing documents to relay key messages to various audiences are some of the essential skills that can be developed through the course. The two-day course is taught by the leading journalist, Marianne Gray, who has extensive experience both as a journalist and as a trainer.
The course is essentially very realistic and contemporary. It is a relaxed class that covers a lot of ground and is designed to make your business corporate writing stand out in a crowd. It guides delegates on how to find and write vital information in the best style and deliver it to the correct reader. In class we write documents like mission statements, business reports, speeches and corporate documents for external, in-house, web and blog use.
We will do our best to incorporate individual training needs. Prior to the course taking place, you will be required to provide details on your current role and areas that you wish to improve in terms of writing and what you are looking to gain from the course. The training is designed to be practical and offers considerable advice and information.Course delegates will submit a 1,500 word feature two weeks after completing the course. Topics can be related to either professional occupations or personal interest.
