Business writing coaching

Gain confidence,
Find your voice

A series of one-to-one sessions with a business writing coach is the quickest, most powerful way to boost your confidence as a writer. Sessions can be conducted over the phone, by email or in person.

We’ll begin by looking at examples of your work. Together, we’ll help you build on your strengths as a writer and tackle your weaknesses.

Over a series of four or five sessions, you’ll learn to express yourself more quickly and more persuasively.

Whether you’re a senior executive, professional communicator or ambitious first-jobber, working with your very own writing coach will help you find your voice.

Organisations are breeding grounds for bad writing. And when someone comes to me for some writing coaching, I usually discover their bad writing habits have been nurtured by their colleagues.
