Do you want to write with real power?
Do you want to turbo charge your career? Your business? Your business results?
Writing for Results will help you do all that.
Here's the best part. You won't have to remember a whole bunch of tips and techniques.
How on earth do we do that?
Writing for Results is an interactive workday where you discover your own, innate writing ability.
We'll guide you through a series of enjoyable and challenging exercises. We'll ask you questions along the way, and offer suggestions and possible places to look in answering those questions.
Then, when you get to work the next day, you somehow find yourself using the discoveries you've made as you write.
Participants in Writing for Results report:
- No longer being stopped by writer's block
- Getting their first draft written quickly, even when the subject is complex - saving hours every week
- Stating their basic arguments in clear, simple terms
- Developing a clear, compelling argument that's hard to resist
- Eliminating empty and weak words from their writing, giving it real muscle
- Getting the business results they want more often
Who is it for?
Writing for Results is for anyone who relies on communication to get their job done. If you spend more than a few hours each week writing reports, proposals, web or online content, marketing materials, media releases - in fact any business documentation that matters - you'll get real value from this training.
