We don't just train you to be a better writer.
We train you to achieve greater results.
In today's world, communication is everything.
In just one day, Writing for Results will dramatically lift your ability to communicate - in writing, and in person.
You'll come away saying what you mean with greater clarity and more power - lifting the results you achieve.
What's more, we'll also train you to write much more efficiently, eliminating many hours of unproductive time and freeing you up to get more done.
Writing for Results is led by leading business writer and educator Ken Grace. In a 30-year career, Ken has worked with Vodafone, Westpac, Grant Thornton, GM, Air New Zealand and many others. Ken holds a Masters degree in English, with 1st Class Honours and has won multiple journalism and advertising copywriting awards.
Writing for Results is an intensive, interactive workday that will both challenge and stimulate you. Exercises, which are drawn from a range of disciplines, include:
The 50 boxes
The thinking exercise
Six ways in
Sentence hot spots
The most powerful editing tool of them all
During these exercises, you'll discover your own strengths as a communicator, and areas to develop. You'll walk out of the day able to:
Never be stopped by writer's block
Write a first draft quickly, even when the subject is complex - saving you hours every week
State your basic argument in clear, simple terms
Develop a clear, compelling argument that's hard to resist
Eliminate empty and weak words from your written and verbal communication, giving your writing and speaking real muscle
Get the business results you 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.

"Your writing training has made a visible and important difference to our Audit Team. We came to you wanting to reduce the time it took to write our reports, while also improving quality and clarity. We’ve achieved both in a surprisingly short time, and to an even greater extent than I had hoped for.
"The benefits include greater productivity, improved staff morale, and – most importantly – the clarity needed for our Executive Team to make important decisions with confidence."
