What people say about Writing well at work

The best course on writing I have ever done. Easy to follow and just plain common sense.
The point that no matter how long and hard you work on a report, if no one reads it then it is a waste of time. Really got through to me.
It has made me consider my reader more and my writing is not so “long-winded” now.
Framing my thoughts in terms of why I’m writing, to whom and what is the key message I want to convey, makes me spend less time writing.
Just the clarity of the presentation and the push to ensure we are thinking about what the customer wants to know (the purpose of the report), as well as what we want the customer to do after reading the report.
The practicality of the information – it was easy to see how I could apply lessons to my own writing. I particularly liked the exercise on using simpler words – that has really stuck with me.
Very good course that I’ve tried to put into practice right away. I’m finding it easiest to implement talking headings and focusing on overall readability. The actual sentence structure is a lot harder to change my habits for.
This type of training is a good opportunity to stop the hectic day to day activities and think about process and outcomes.
I think we should do the course every few years. Much of what you discussed we all know but tend to forget.
