Clear writing is based on clear thinking and there is no reason why you can't write well. You don't have to write the next great novel, but you do need to write well. And maybe you'll surprise yourself and find you no longer say: 'I hate writing'.
In this course, you'll learn through videos, reading information, quizzes, podcasts and activities. You'll also receive two comprehensive e-books on sentences and words for future reference. Each lesson is bite-sized, so you can dip in and out when you have a few minutes to spare.
The principles in this course apply to all types of business writing, including reports, memos, proposals and emails.
This course is suitable for anyone who wants to improve the professionalism of their business writing.

During my career, I've taught thousands of people from a range of organisations, including large corporations, government departments, associations and not-for-profits.
This course is based on my practical experience writing and teaching. I'm always thinking about what works and why in business writing and have developed simple and practical techniques to help you improve your writing.
I believe people who teach writing need to write themselves. I blog regularly and have written three nonfiction books (Promote Your Business, Talk Up Your Business, Write to Govern.)
My qualifications include a BA in English and History, a Diploma of Social Work and a Diploma of Teaching. I am a lifelong student of writing and grammar.
Does the price include Australian GST?
The price is in Australian dollars and includes goods and services tax (GST). If you are an international buyer, contact me and I will refund the GST.
How long will this course take?
I estimate this course will take 9-12 hours, but I recommend that you do it in several sittings, not all at once. The course is broken into sections to make it easy to dip in and out of.
How long do I have access to the course for?
You have 'lifetime' access. In other words, the course does not have an expiry date. You can repeat the course as many times as you like.
My writing skills are quite good. Will I learn anything new from this course?
Definitely. We never stop learning about writing. This is a chance to take your writing to the next level.
Will the course be relevant for my industry?
The principles of good writing apply to all industries.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
Yes, I have a 30-day money-back guarantee. No questions asked.
Will I receive a certificate at the end?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion.
