Training & Workshops
Skills Development that Gets results
Sure, you could buy an off-the-shelf coaching solution to develop existing talent or prepare new hires for their jobs. Save your time and money. Get a training program or coaching engagement tailored to your specific needs and based on the quality of work you want.
I work with you to design cost-efficient professional development that targets your/your team's specific content creation challenges or skills gaps, delivers proven and purpose-built interventions and strategies, builds individual and team capacity, tracks progress and improvement, and produces measurable ROI.
"Very, very informative. I'll actually use the writing techniques ASAP. It was fun!"
Writing well takes effort. We don't need to make it harder. Our workshops focus on the most pressing obstacles to quality content and feature tactics based on decades of experience in newsrooms, corporate communications departments and consulting. We even throw in some academic and industry research. Workshops are offered on-site or virtually or in half- and full-day sessions for your team.
Looking for one-on-one instruction? You want coaching.
Writing short requires a keen focus and potent content -- and this strategy captures both. Ideal for any kind of microcontent: weekly updates, blogs, status updates and blurbs.
