Remote working has many advantages, but it also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The lack of in-person interaction can lead to more misunderstandings and feelings of isolation, and you have to find new ways to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
But with a new skill set, effective workflows and an understanding of how to make the most of your available tools, you and your colleagues can thrive in your virtual workplace. This half-day, intensive CPD-accredited session will equip you with the key skills and techniques you need.
We deliver this engaging, interactive course online using the latest web technology, so you can attend no matter where you are. All you need is a computer, a headset and stable internet access.
By joining this training, you’ll also get a year’s access to our comprehensive, CPD-accredited e-learning programme The complete business writer (which would normally cost £150). This consists of 52 interactive, expert modules on effective business-writing techniques that will complement what you learn on the half-day course.
By the end of the training, you will know how to:
As part of the preparation, we’ll ask you to fill in an analysis exercise which identifies your social style. The insights that this questionnaire reveals will help you understand your own drivers and needs at work, as well as to relate better to your colleagues.
We’ve been running remote-learning programmes for over ten years, training over 6,000 people online and continually refining our approach in that time. So you can be confident that this course will be as engaging and effective as one run face to face.

Engaging, well paced, and despite being delivered remotely, we maintained focus and interest. Great course!

Great exposure to things people in our everyday jobs may not have ever told us.

Excellent course materials
Your writing is unique – you have your own strengths and areas you can improve on. It’s only by knowing these that you can make big, efficient and targeted improvements to your writing.
That’s why, before the course, we’ll analyse your writing across 15 different areas. Our trainers will know and understand your writing.
Unlike other course providers, we won’t leave you high and dry when you return to your desk. You have access to our dedicated helpdesk for a year after your course.
You will also receive regular free tips and resources by email. We also offer optional post-course coaching.
We’ve helped professionals in every sector and industry (see our clients). If your manager has told you that you need to improve, you’re in safe hands. If you want to get a new job or promotion, we’ll equip you with the skills you need to impress. And if you need to brush up on the basics, we’ll give you a solid grounding and build your confidence.
We only recruit trainers and consultants with years of professional experience in writing, editing and communications. And every one goes through a six-month onboarding process to ensure they can effectively and engagingly deliver that expertise to you in the training room.
So you can be confident that the trainer on your course will have the skills and experience to help you make the changes you need to to transform everything you write at work.
Our professionally bound course manual will contain all your notes, as well as detailed summaries of our techniques for writing better documents.
You’ll also have free helpline support for a year after the course – so whatever your question, you’ll always be within easy reach of an answer.
