Questions you may have

Who should do this course?

People who get the most out of Writing well at work are typically already working in business or government. They write or review documents as part of their daily work. Most think that their writing is OK, but feel they could do better. They know that if they could communicate a little better in writing, they would do better at work. And that would enhance their career.

Most participants have post school qualifications of some sort, often a bachelor or masters degree. Most have above average intelligence, so the material is covered fairly quickly to get through the content quickly.

This course is not for everybody. It’s not a beginners course, nor is it suitable for those who can’t already read and write in English.

Why is it so cheap?

It’s been a struggle settling on a price to charge. I want to make this knowledge available because I think clear writing will benefit us all. But I don’t want to give this course away because it won’t be valued as it should be.

I finally decided to charge $1 below the minimum per participant price that I charge business and government for the face to face course.

I make the price clear up front without ‘sign up now’ or ‘contact us for price’ tricks. I want to give you good information so you can make a sound decision about whether this course is for you.

Do I already know the material covered in the course?

There’s a good chance you’ll have heard some of it before. There’s no special ‘writing secret’ that I have. But you will likely find reflecting on the writing process in an organised and structured way will be very helpful. And most people find a few new ideas. The amount of new content will depend on how much writer training you have had in the past.

What about a guarantee?

Most internet sales sites promise your money back, no questions asked, if you don’t like the product. Some will give twice your money back.

I don’t offer that. Read any internet marketing book and you’ll see that these types of guarantees are really techniques to increase sales, not really to benefit the buyer.

I don’t want to manipulate you into buying, so I give you good information to help you can make a sound buying decision. That’s why you can view a complete unit for free. However, if you truly find the course is not for you, please contact me and we’ll sort something out.

Will I be bored?

I hope not! It’s likely you’ll find some units more enjoyable than others, depending on what you already know and what you need to do with your writing. And, of course, learning new skills always requires hard work. The units are split into small chunks so you do them a little bit at a time if you like.

Can I get individual help with a document?

I’m happy to answer the odd question, but providing help on a specific document moves from ‘training’ to ‘consulting’. I do that, but its expensive. Contact me if you’d like to discuss how I can help.
