Programme outline

Today’s audience is busy, distracted and bombarded by information. Going into too much detail or overloading your emails or slides with unnecessary data won’t work; constructing a message that gets the key points across without dumbing down your substance is essential.

This presentation looks at the key techniques required for writing with purpose:

  • Knowing why you’re writing,
  • Who you’re writing for
  • And the best approach to take given the message you want to convey.

You’ll come away with ideas about construction, use of language and tone – so that you sound approachable and professional, whatever the circumstances.

He’s also a trained actor which has proved invaluable in our wide variety of presentation skills courses. He has authored courses on virtual and face-to-face presentation, intercultural communication, leading global teams, influencing, and business writing. He has delivered them, and the rest of Working Voices’ repertoire, to large and small audiences in classrooms, auditoria and via telepresence, around the world. He’s also our most experienced 1:1 business coach.

We understand the need to provide a safe space where you can feel comfortable in seeking advice from others and have open conversations. As such, we have made the decision to follow ‘Chatham House rules’ and will be not be recording these sessions, and all participants must refrain from taking screenshots or making their own recording. This is to ensure that everybody at the sessions feel at ease and can be open as they wish to be.
