in Australian dollars
During my career, I've taught thousands of people from a range of organisations, including large corporations, government departments, associations and not-for-profits.
This course is based on my practical experience writing and teaching. I'm always thinking about what works and why in business writing and have developed simple and practical techniques to help you improve your writing.
I believe people who teach writing need to write themselves. I blog regularly and have written three nonfiction books (Promote Your Business, Talk Up Your Business, Write to Govern.)
My qualifications include a BA in English and History, a Diploma of Social Work and a Diploma of Teaching. I am a lifelong student of writing and grammar.
The price is in Australian dollars and includes goods and services tax (GST). If you are an international buyer, contact me and I will refund the GST.
I estimate this course will take 9-12 hours, but I recommend that you do it in several sittings, not all at once. The course is broken into sections to make it easy to dip in and out of.
You have 'lifetime' access. In other words, the course does not have an expiry date. You can repeat the course as many times as you like.
Definitely. We never stop learning about writing. This is a chance to take your writing to the next level.
The principles of good writing apply to all industries.
