Our Writing For An Intranet
training course
breathes new life into your
internal communications

Intranets are powerful tools. But are you making best use
of yours?

Our Writing For An Intranet training workshop shows you how to unlock the full power of the medium.

Best practices
If you create content for an intranet, you’ll know how valuable it can be for internal communications. But do your words always connect with their intended audiences?

Our one day course teaches you best practices in intranet writing.

Simple principles
We’ll tell you exactly what you must do to capture and hold the interest of intranet readers.

We’ll show you how, by following a few simple principles, you can achieve more effective employee communications. This in turn can lead to better employee relations and greater employee motivation.

Bespoke training
This is a highly tailored course.

Before the training we speak to you and any colleagues attending, and ask you to send us examples of your writing. This can be a mix of intranet content and any other material you may have written as part of your job.

We also discuss your level of expertise and experience, and talk about the internal communications issues you face. If necessary, we speak to your line manager as well.

We then design a course that fits your needs.

What you learn
Although each session varies, a typical Writing For An Intranet training course is likely to cover:

  • an overview of good writing techniques for online media
  • the principles of good internal communications and how they apply to the intranet
  • techniques for connecting with readers and boosting readability
  • tips for ensuring readers do not miss crucial information
  • a powerful tool for writing, editing and restructuring your text
  • how to write strong headlines and effective links.

In addition our course looks at:

  • how to handle sensitive or controversial issues
  • how to convert offline material - such as leaflets, brochures and reports - into accessible intranet content
  • how to breathe life into dull or uninspiring material
  • writing techniques to capture and hold the reader’s attention
  • common intranet mistakes and how to avoid them.

What you gain
During the course our tutor will provide constructive feedback on your organisation's intranet content, identifying strengths as well as areas which could benefit from further development.

Where he finds weaknesses he will give you practical advice on how to fix them.

By the end of the session you'll be equipped with a powerful set of intranet writing tools designed to help you breathe new life into your internal communications.

Our Writing For An Intranet training courses are suitable for groups of two to six people. A one-to-one master class is also available.
