Editorial training

Courses and individual coaching in basic writing, business writing and online writing

If you ever struggle to express yourself clearly and concisely in writing, I can help you produce better copy in whatever form you need it: in emails, in reports for the board or on your website.

My starting point is your work and your requirements. I look at what you’re trying to achieve with each piece of writing that you do and build a course that meets your needs.

I make sure the courses are interactive. I use your own material to work on in exercises, so that everything you learn is relevant to the job you do. I allow plenty of time for individual feedback and for questions on your particular doubts or difficulties.

“Probably the best training course in terms of delivery, content and style that I’ve attended in the last 15 years.”

Editorial consultancy

Advice and help with content strategy, website performance and every kind of written communication

With years of experience working in websites, and a background in radio and television journalism, I take a strategic view of all your communications. I can bring an impartial eye to review your written output and recommend improvements.

My experience as a journalist and editor means that I scrutinise text, layout and presentation in detail, to ensure that every part of your written communication is as good as it can be.

I am used to working with people with different skills, mainly web designers and coders, but also public relations specialists and trainers in other fields. Our collaboration has been in many sectors, including financial services, banking, energy, public service and the arts.

“Your wonderful insight and constructive criticism played an essential part in our plans to revamp our online content.”
