If you are looking for a business writing course, there seem to be hundreds out there. Searching the term business writing course will bring up hundreds of web results in Australia.
When creating my business writing course, I researched what was being offered and discovered how I could create a better way to develop business writing skills.
The typical business writing course is not taught by a business writing expert but by a professional facilitator. The instructor follows a manual and teaches what’s in it. So one day the facilitator will teach negotiating skills, on another they will teach time management, and on another they will teach business writing. Many of these trainers are ‘jacks of all trades’ who simply follow a training manual to deliver the business writing course.
What makes this business writing course different?
The point of difference in creating my business writing course is having thousands of hours of hands-on business writing and editing experience. I have personally written and edited over 4,000 business documents and publications for hundreds of companies — from sole trader businesses to multinational corporations. So I know the most common challenges and mistakes in business writing — what works and what doesn’t.
As a trainer, I totally focus on written communication. So I don’t teach negotiating skills, team building, conflict resolution, time management, etc.
My business writing course has been designed for organisations seeking expert in-house training. I will come to your business and deliver the course when it is convenient for you. In addition, Business Writing Brilliance is tailored to your specific needs. In advance of the course, we will determine your organisation’s business writing shortcomings and customise the course to overcome these challenges. Your employees will gain the skills to create clear, concise and persuasive business writing that delivers results.
In addition to have hands-on experience, I have thousands of business writing samples that complement the training. These include business documents I have written and edited for clients since 2004 (business and personal names have been changed to protect confidentiality).
Topics typically covered in Business Writing Brilliance include:
- How to simplify your writing and keep readers interested in your message
- The most common grammar and usage errors — and how to avoid them
- How to create winning emails, letters, proposals and other business documents
