Better Writing Course – 4th & 11th April

The best business writing communicates effectively and efficiently. Do it well and it says good things about you and your organisation.

But most people aren’t trained to write for business. For some, a blank page leads to panic; others resort to corporate gibberish and end up saying nothing worthwhile.

This short course, devised by experienced business journalist Dominic Mills, comprises two two-hour modules. It’s light on grammar and heavy on practical tips. Delegates find out the difference between good and bad writing and, via an interactive session based on their own writing, how to improve their style and technique. (And for the competitive, there’s a few quizzes and tests thrown in.)

You won’t end up a literary genius, but you’ll write with clarity and confidence.

The course is split across two days so you must be able to attend both days from 2pm – 4pm.

Session 1. Tuesday 4th April

Session 2. Tuesday 11th April

The sessions will be between 2pm – 4pm.

The course is limited to 7 people, so book now to avoid disappointment!
