Poorly written communications are bad for business. Mistakes can be expensive, whether they're business proposals full of typos, web pages that fail to convey your message, ambiguous emails that create confusion, or presentation materials with errors that reflect badly on the presenter and your company. Business can be lost, costs increased, confidence undermined, and your reputation diminished.
Writers Victoria offers a range of professional writing courses for business and government clients.
Give your team the skills and confidence to develop clear and effective written communications — from reports, proposals and policies to emails, web pages and blog posts, speeches, media releases, marketing materials and more.
Our cost-effective, half- and one-day training courses can be delivered in your own venue at a time that suits you. You can also send some of your team members to one of our open workshops. Or, for tailored feedback on your looming annual report, look into annual reports coaching with communications expert Spiri Tsintziras.
Good writing gets better results. No matter your role or industry, good writing and communication skills can make a difference. Our experienced tutors use creative techniques to make our courses both practical and fun.
