Training & Coaching

Writing skills for work. For life.

Our workshops are short, fun and extremely effective.

Here’s something that might surprise you. It isn’t actually very difficult to become a good writer. There are plenty of simple tips we can pass on to you that will improve your writing instantly.

Have you, for instance, ever stopped to think about how many words there should be in a sentence? Do you have any idea what “shape” your document should be? Do you make common mistakes like writing “could of” instead of “could have”?

Our workshops focus on helping you develop a strong, clear, direct writing style. We’ll also take a look at the most common punctuation and grammar mistakes, and throw in some tips on spelling too.

Your content will read better, look better and be better for your company’s bottom line.

Business writing skills

(in-house training)

 

Do you have a number of delegates who would like to do the workshop? If so, The Sentence Works can come to your offices.

Our in-house training is always available at a time and date to suit you.  We offer a variety of courses to suit your time, budget and needs.

We can deliver the standard day-long Sentence Works workshop, the half day masterclass or the intensive two-hour session.

We can combine standard elements of the course with others tailored especially for you. For instance, we designed an email workshop for one client and a press release writing workshop for another.  For in-house courses, we will use your own examples of web copy, reports etc.

We can also develop an entirely bespoke workshop for your staff if you prefer.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

One-to-one Coaching

 

—Would you prefer an individual session? —

An open course might not be for you. You might have particular issues you’d like to focus on, or you might simply prefer the privacy of individual coaching.

You might want advice and help on writing a particular document. We can offer a one-off session or we can have several meetings.

Please get in touch to discuss your requirements. This writing skills coaching is particularly suitable for senior executives.

Coaching is available face-to-face, by email, phone or Skype.
