Writing training

Tailor-made, in-company English writing training

Interested in English writing training? Would you like to write more convincing reports? Winning proposals. Technical papers that get accepted.  Emails that get answered.

The good news is you can. You can improve your English writing skills and in a very short time. What’s more, you can do at a training tempo that fits your workload. I’ll explain how in-company training workshops and one-to-one coaching can do the trick.

English writing training for you

My offer is in-company writing training tailored to the  needs of managers, engineers and scientists. And for anyone in business or a profession that requires writing regularly in English.

The training puts at your fingertips the skills and techniques, tips and tricks you need to write more efficiently and effectively.

You’ll learn what they don’t teach you in English language courses. Because the writing training starts where standard language courses leave off.

If you’ve learned English as a second language, you know the grammar, syntax and spelling. Of course, you could always improve with more grammar lessons. We all could! But that’s not what this writing training is about.

Tailored-made English writing training

Clear, concise writing is essential for all technical and business documents – project proposals, technical reports, scientific papers, user manuals. And for technical product brochures, news articles, press releases. And yes! most definitely for writing emails.

I’m offering writing training that’s tailor-made to the specific type of writing you do regularly. So you will learn the skill of clear, concise writing in context of the documents you write regularly.

You can choose the training focus which may be any of the following:

  • Concise and well-structured reports
  • User manuals in Simplified Technical English (STE)
  • Scientific papers peer-review
  • Convincing proposals
  • Brochures and newsletters for customers
  • Websites that hold viewers’ attention
  • Press releases that get media attention
  • Emails that are answered promptly.

And to ensure the training is totally relevant to you and your work, we’ll work together on typical examples from your day-to-day writing. That’s also why training is in-company in small group workshops with colleagues. This means you can relax without concern about the confidentiality of your writing.

Writing coaching

There’s no one size that fits all in writing training. So following the English writing training, I offer one-to-one  coaching to help you with any specific writing issues you may like help with. One individual coaching session is often sufficient to get on the right track.

But if you can’t attend the group training, you might like some individual coaching to get up to speed on tricks and tips to improve your writing.

Maybe, you’d like to have a few tips to get on track for writing a winning proposal. writing a well-argued report. Or structuring a technical paper. You’ll be surprised what you what can be achieved one to two sessions.

Training to fit your work schedule

There’s no need to sign up to a writing training course of weekly lessons. To be honest, such commitments don’t fit with busy work schedules. Before you know it, you’ll start missing lessons, no matter how hard you try not to!

So, I organise the writing training to fit your work schedule. Here’s an approach that has worked well for many different types of organisations and companies.

We work in small group to explain, demonstrate and practise the techniques and tricks of clear concise writing for business and technical documents. And you’ll learn tips on how to streamline the writing process. Two half-day training workshops work best for most organisations, and followed by an individual coaching session. One session is usually sufficient to consolidate the new writing skills.

One last thought

You’ve got no time for writing training. You’re on tight deadlines. Yes. I agree this could be a problem. But timely practical writing support could pay dividends.

Knowing what’s needed to write a winning proposal. To write easy to understand technical manuals. Or product brochures that get your client’s attention. This is got to be a bonus in your work.
