Effective Writing Workshops for Corporate Groups

FOR COMMUNICATIONS, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT professionals and other business writers.

Duration: Two days

Learn to write effective articles, blog posts, features, op-eds, essays, for your online or for your press audiences. I also help clients write effective proposals and investment memoranda.

Day 1

  • Identify your audience(s) and your message(s).

  • Shape the message with your audience in mind.

  • Plan and schedule your writing

Day 2

  • Declutter your writing

  • Write a piece of your own that is appropriate for your audience and goals.

This workshop is lively and interactive. There are plenty of writing exercises and discussions.

This course is customizable for a variety of professionals. The focus is less on industry conventions and more about ensuring your message is clear and targeted. So far, I have customized it for non-profit researchers, human rights campaigners, auditors, venture capitalists.

I recommend coaching after the workshop to address individual writing challenges. There is a written assessment before and after the workshop to test progress.
