"Thanks for running a highly enjoyable course for us. Feedback from the event has been excellent and a couple of people have already put your exercises into practice (with fantastic results)."

“The course was excellent: very well presented and extremely helpful. So many courses I've been on and left knowing that, although the information was reasonably useful, I'd never put it into practice for one reason or another. This course was different - I left knowing I'd picked up some really easy to follow tips that would make a real difference.”

Writing skills development:
training and coaching

As well as writing for clients I also help them to develop their own writing skills. In fact, I love training as much as writing and worked as a trainer even before I got into writing for a living.

My workshops, courses and programmes are the ultimate in practical writing skills development. If I haven't personally used a technique I won't teach it. I focus entirely on how to be a better, more effective and more confident writer. Yes, my teaching is informed by marketing and communications theory, but it's totally practical: everything I cover can be used minutes later by attendees.
