Eileen was very highly recommended to me and she certainly did not disappoint. I was writing my first book on leadership and needed objective, expert advice and practical input. Eileen quickly grasped the concepts and helped me to re-shape and sharpen the end product. I would definitely employ her again

Training courses for small groups


Would you or a member of your organisation benefit from one-to-one, personalised help to improve writing skills? Perhaps you’ve written the first draft of a book and would welcome some objective, skilled feedback on its structure and style? Are you a professional who would like some help with putting your ideas, knowledge and expertise into writing, for example for a book or feature article? Please contact me for a no-obligation chat about how I could help you.

Do some of the people working in your organisation need to improve their writing skills?  Poor writing style and grammatical mistakes make any piece of writing appear unprofessional and reflect badly on the organisation.

Communicating your message clearly, using correct grammar and punctuation, is more professional, creates a good impression and is more likely to achieve the results you want.

My training courses for small groups will improve the standard of writing among your staff. These flexible in-house courses can be tailored to meet the needs of participants at all levels.

The courses are aimed at small groups (up to six people) and include a combination of presentation, group exercises and discussion. The training is lively, relaxed and non-threatening.

Before each course I will have an in-depth discussion with the client to agree the objectives, so that I can design a course to meet the specific needs of the participants.

Topics:

I can tailor a course to meet the needs of the participants, but the main topics are likely to include:

Effective writing

Learn how to plan and structure a piece of writing, make an impact and get your key points across.


Improve your use of English

Brush up on your grammar and punctuation and avoid some common mistakes


Improve your writing style

Understand the importance of sentence length and structure, express yourself more clearly and develop a more readable, user-friendly and lively writing style.

The course could also cover adapting writing style to suit different readerships.
The training can be delivered in a one-day course or over two half-days.
It can take place at your own premises or, if you prefer, at an alternative venue.
