Remote business training

Strawberry Lodge business training centre in Carshalton

Upgrade your team's            business writing skills           in just half a day

Our remote Business Writing Workshop can transform your team’s output.

By placing your colleagues on one of these virtual training sessions, you can greatly boost the impact and performance of your organisation's business documents.

Nobody's fault
Let's be clear, the problem we're addressing here is not anyone's fault. It’s arisen simply because modern readers are unlike any we have known before. They present a huge challenge for today's business writers.

And most of us have not been taught how to adapt to that challenge.

To connect with readers in the 2020s we have to adjust the way we write. Some of the techniques that worked in the past, are no longer fit for purpose.

Luckily, the changes we need to make are relatively straightforward. 

Fixing the problem
In just a few hours our trainer can teach your team how to comprehensively fix this problem.

He’ll provide them with the tools they need to capture and hold the attention of today's easily distracted readers.

Crucially, your colleagues can take these ideas away and start applying them to their writing within minutes of leaving the workshop.

Practical tips 
Among other things, he'll show them how to:

  • write more persuasively
  • convey key messages more effectively 
  • breathe new life into topics that may seem less than interesting.

He'll also give them some great tips for speeding up the whole writing process, especially when writing lengthy documents.

His tips are practical and easy to implement. Best of all, they can be applied to a wide range of writing tasks.

This includes emails, letters, reports and proposals, as well as newsletters, business cases, management briefings, web content, intranet content and much more besides.

Business writers from around the world
To date our 
trainer’s workshops have been attended by business writers from 19 countries. And that number continues to rise.

They include people from major businesses and charities, as well as from government departments - at local, national and international level. 

Wherever your team members are located on the planet, there's a good chance they'll be able to join this remote course. 

By encouraging them to do so, you'll ensure their English business writing skills are fit for the communications challenges of the 2020s.

Course availability
These sessions are available on three days of the week: 
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Start and finish times can be adjusted to suit local needs.

In some cases you may have to wait two, or possibly, three weeks before we can find you a spare slot.

Creative Copywriting for Publishers

Distance learning for the Coronavirus era

With much of the world still under lockdown, now could be an ideal time to consider acquiring new skills from the comfort of your home.

The Creative Copywriting for Publishers distance learning course offers all the guidance you’ll need to write compelling, professional copy. What’s more, you can complete it in your own time, at your own pace.    

A new career path
This could be a chance to further develop your writing skills and set yourself on a new career path. Though the training focuses on copywriting in the publishing industry, the lessons you'll learn are relevant to copywriting across all areas of business.

As a student on this highly practical course, you'll be introduced to:

  • 13 powerful tools used by professional writers
  • 15 essential copywriting skills you can quickly master
  • 21 skill-building activities to help you fast track your copywriting career.

Expert evaluation of your writing                In addition, you'll receive expert evaluation of your writing by the course tutor, as you complete five thought-provoking assignments.

This is not a Strawberry Training course. However, we are happy to recommend it. Firstly, because it's been developed by one of our most experienced trainers, and secondly, because it's an excellent course.

And finally. . . it's worth emphasising, that this is a distance learning package where distance truly is no object. You can sign up and enjoy all the benefits of this course from practically any location in the world.
