The other service I offer is customised tutoring in business writing, helping you to write clear business English.

Until March 2020 I was a visiting lecturer at City, University of London, running 10-week short courses in Writing for Business.

Drawing on this expertise and material, I provide customised tutoring, mentoring and training for educational bodies, corporates or individuals.

This can be in the classroom, online (e.g. Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, MS Teams) or even by phone: it is completely up to you.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements. This service is priced by the hour (including preparation/homework) and if necessary including travel costs.

Writing for Business Short Course

I was a visiting lecturer at City, University of London between 2017 and 2020, teaching their Writing for Business short course.

This evening course is for business professionals who want to improve their writing skills.

It is a highly practical course suitable for anyone whose job involves writing corporate documents, or who wants their business writing to stand out in a crowd.

Topics covered include: writing emails that people want to read, sales and marketing content, digital writing including websites and blogs, press releases and corporate documents, CVs, bios and speeches, how to conduct interviews and how to edit documents.

My expert former colleagues at City, University of London continue to offer this course (online only until further notice).

No specific qualifications are necessary, but students should be working within a business environment and looking to improve their writing skills in this context. Apply here to sign up.

Customised Training

Drawing on my City University expertise and material, I also provide customised training in business writing for other educational bodies, corporates or individuals.

This can be in the classroom, by video meeting (e.g. Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, MS Teams) or even by phone: it is completely up to you.

Clients who have used my customised training services include the Bank of England (PRA), Hermes Investment Management, Strabens Hall wealth advisors, and private individuals.

The syllabus for this kind of training is often based on my City, University of London Writing for Business short course and my forthcoming book, but can also be tailored to cover any or all of the following topics:

  • Principles of good business writing
  • Correctness in business writing: rules, usage and style
  • Sound, story and structure
  • Understanding the market and the reader
  • Planning and research
  • Legal and editorial
  • Digital writing including readability metrics
  • Email, presentations, speeches and other formats
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Press releases and interviewing
  • The format is completely flexible: it can be mainly lecture-style, more workshop-style, or more personally interactive, with individual/small group tuition and homework. It depends on your needs.

    Please contact me to discuss your requirements. This service is priced by the hour (including preparation/homework) and if necessary including travel costs.
