All of the above participants in my Business Writing Coaching courses have come from referrals. These professional recommendations were by individuals who did my online business writing courses or one of my Writers Vic, RMIT or BoxHill Institute led programs.

And as we all know, word-of-mouth is the best advertising.

Feedback From In-House Course Participants

in-house training @ Abbotsford Convent

“For background, I have undertaken copy edit workshops in the past, with different outcomes/angles, such as understanding in-house brand voice and Vis Comms adapting styles from traditional Cambridge/ Chicago to new voices and digital styles. However, this workshop was a fantastic PD opportunity to engage with the team, as it added context to our immediate everyday tasks and having two sessions was terrific!

  1. Narrative logic: Having us brainstorm and analyse text together was a valuable exercise. We were mindful of the audience/reader and proactive about peer reviews/seeking feedback where possible. 
  2. Creative writing flow vs strategic edits: a clear toolkit to apply this in my current role.”
