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.

"I have learnt more on the Copywriting Skills Development Programme than I ever thought possible! The video seminars are clear and easy to follow and the programme format has enabled me to fit my ‘homework’ around my other daily tasks and deliverables. Richard’s approachable nature made me feel at ease throughout the training. He has invested a great deal of time in me – much more than I expected when I registered for the programme – and I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Copywriting is something I now face with a lot more confidence and my writing is better than ever."
