Better Business Writing for Communications Professionals

Time:  Two, 2-hour online sessions held a week apart (total 4 hours)

Maximum:  8 people 

It’s ironic that a company’s communications people (the very people whose job is to tell their organization’s story) need writing help. But even they get diverted from being clear and persuasive to whoever they’re writing for.

This course can help your communicators find their voice again, so their writing becomes clear and quick and memorable to read.

Better Business Writing – General

Time:  Two, 2-hour online sessions held a week apart (total 4 hours)

Maximum:  8 people 

Are your employees getting bogged down and unable to really tell their story anymore? Especially now that they are working from home, and diverted by so many more things that can unfocus us all?

This course focuses not on a soft skill like writing, but on the very hard skill that writing well is.

With lots of homework and one-on-one interaction, the end goal of this course is to have readers say of the course participants’ writing:  “Well, that was clear.”

Pitching to Win

Time:  Two, 2-hour online sessions held a week apart (total 4 hours)

Maximum:  4 people

Most firms are thrilled to win 1 in 4 new business pitches. But what if you could win 1 in 3? That fortune you invest in staff time and disruption would suddenly make more sense. Not to mention the flood of new revenue. There’s a secret to winning your unfair share. Practice.

You thought there was a magic bullet? Sorry. Preparation still beats hope and panic every time. But since when did skill and experience win any piece of business? What selection committees really want from your team isn’t just competence. It’s chemistry, creativity, enthusiasm and clarity under fire.

Unless you can communicate all of that, you won’t win. 

This course can help you do both.

Persuasion

Time:  Two, 2.5-hour online sessions held a week or two apart (total 5 hours)

Maximum:  8 people

If you can’t persuade, you can’t succeed.  Whether face-to-face or online, you have only two ways to determine if I’ll do what you want: what you say to me and what you write to me. 

Whether big formal pitches, whose goal is persuasion on a large scale, or small informal meetings, and even information sessions, conveying your message needs to be as much about the confirmation of your expertise and authority, and the confidence to carry it off. These are no small things.

This course will teach you how to use words that convince, rather than just explain.  And, how to write and speak straight to the heart when the listener’s head is tempted to say “no.”
