Writing training workshops and editing courses tailored to your industry

More than ever, productivity and efficiency depend on clear, concise communication. Yet inefficient writing habits, coupled with poor writing skills, continue to cost organisations thousands of dollars each year.


Our many years of experience working with large and small organisations has shown us that most people do not approach their writing tasks in the most efficient way, often wasting time unnecessarily. We have also noticed a trend towards increasingly casual writing in business emails with a lack of attention to detail and consistency in all documentation.

To enhance your brand and maintain your professional image, we can help your staff produce clear, concise and grammatically correct emails and other written communications from reports to fact sheets to blogs and e-newsletters.

Customised business writing course to raise your staff's skill level

Through our writing training services, our highly-qualified and experienced facilitators can improve productivity. Customised writing training and editing courses train your staff to use their writing time more efficiently and produce a higher standard of emails, reports, fact sheets and other workplace communications.

Onsite writing training and editing courses

We offer half-day and one-day customised writing training and editing courses (workshops) as well as writing training for individuals (coaching and mentoring).

Customised workshops

All our workshops are conducted on-site at your premises for small groups of between 6 and 12 participants. Small groups encourage active participation and allow our facilitators to identify specific training needs and provide feedback to individuals.

We do not offer any ‘off-the-shelf’ packages or public workshops. This means each business writing course we deliver is carefully customised to your industry, or work team, using real examples from your own workplace (with your permission) as well as hypothetical examples relevant to your industry.

What our clients say about our writing courses

'We have consistently received excellent feedback from Concise Writing Consultancy's workshops. The customisation of the workshop to our industry, the practical activities, as well as the individual feedback participants receive on their work, have resulted in improvement in the writing ability and confidence of our staff.' (June 2013). Bryan Jago, National Service Manager, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited, Medical Division

‘Thank you for your course. I find myself using what you taught all the time when I write. The big take-away has been thinking about what the point is and what is the best way to do it. It has made my emails a lot more concise.’ Scott Buckland, Service Engineer, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited
