Would you like to write more clearly and confidently? My business English writing courses can help!
I believe that with the right training, everyone can write great business English. It’s not about being Shakespeare – it’s about understanding the message you want to write and being able to express it in clear, effective language. I offer tailored courses in business English writing for both native and second-language English speakers.
Why take a business English writing course?
Writing is a huge part of our daily lives. We write to colleagues, we write to customers and we write to friends. If something is important, we put it in writing. So why are many of us so bad at it? Poorly written emails and jargon-filled reports are so common, they have become cliches of office life. The answer is that most of us were never taught to write effective business English. We were taught to write essays in school, and then sent out into the world with the wrong set of tools for the job. My business English writing course will help you change the way you approach writing. I’ll teach you how to write clearly and professionally. Most importantly, I’ll teach you how to create business writing that actually delivers results.
What topics will the course cover?
Each course is tailored to meet your needs. I’ll work with you to make sure we cover the topics that will help you the most. A typical single-day course might cover:
- Business writing basics
- How to think like a business writer
- Avoiding the common problems (jargon, poor organisation, etc.)
- Planning your writing effectively
- Writing for different audiences
- Using facts and figures
- Effective editing and how to handle criticism
What options are available?
Every organisation is different, so I offer a range of training options depending on your needs. I offer half-day, one-day or multi-day courses on-site wherever your business is based. All of these are available for individual students or groups. I can also offer ongoing mentoring over the internet as your personal writing coach. I’d love to help you become a more effective, more confident business writer. To get started or discuss your options, send me a message.
