The session

This half-day session focuses on blogs, insights and article writing, but is equally useful for anyone writing emails, presentations or proposals. We’ll make sure our advice is tailored to your firm’s needs and can add tips that address any specific challenges. Here are the modules we’ll cover:

Module 1
What makes readers tick and messages stick?

What are modern readers really like and how can you get under their skin more effectively? We’ll look at:
 

  • Digital reading habits

  • What readers are looking for (and why)

  • Keeping readers motivated and engaged

  • How to create a compelling first line

Ongoing practical support

Our advice and support don’t end with the workshop. We’ll follow up with a feedback report detailing our observations of the writing needs of your business, the feedback from delegates, and recommended next steps.


Our follow-up also includes a copy of the slide deck with your tailored slides, a reading list of relevant books on writing, and blog posts or online resources.

Mentoring and writing support

As well as in-house workshops, we can arrange one-to-one mentoring for writers with ambitions to really hone their style. Our team of writers can also help create content for your website or polished copy for print. This booklet for Capsticks has proved one of their most successful business development tools.

Online?
Or in person?

We’re very flexible when it comes to training your team. 

 

We’ll come to you if you prefer us to be there in person – there’s definitely a chemistry that happens ‘in the room’ that helps bring writing alive.

 

Or, if it’s easier to get the team together online, our sessions on Zoom have proved really popular. A half-day whizzes by with plenty of interactive exercises and group discussion. We’ve even run day-long sessions without any sign of Zoom fatigue!
