Tailored workshops for staff and managers

Inefficient writing habits, coupled with poor writing skills, continue to cost organisations thousands of dollars each year. If Australia is to prosper in the global knowledge economy, the ability to write clearly and concisely is essential.

The reality is, many staff struggle to write clear emails and reports. Incorrect punctuation, long and wordy sentences and poorly structured reports all contribute to reduced readability and breakdowns in communication. The result? Frustration, lost productivity, non-compliance, reputational damage and workplace accidents.

Concise Writing Consultancy's customised writing and proofreading skills workshops train your staff to use their writing time more efficiently and produce a higher standard of emails, reports, fact sheets and other workplace communications. 

Customised workshops

All our workshops are conducted on-site at your premises for small groups of between 6 and 10 participants. Small groups encourage active participation as well as allow our facilitators to identify and address specific training needs.

We do not offer any ‘off-the-shelf’ packages or public workshops. This means each business writing course we deliver is carefully customised to your industry, or work team. We use real examples from your own workplace (with your permission) as well as hypothetical examples relevant to your industry. More ...

Individual coaching

For individual team members, we can fast-track learning with face-to-face coaching at our offices in the MLC Centre, Martin Place, Sydney. More ...
