Business Writing

A significant minority of the tomes originated by the luminaries and functionaries in Irish businesses are unfortunately typified by a tendency toward verbosity, or at least toward a linguistic complexity designed, we believe, to convey an insidious lack of assurance on the part of the author.

In other words, a lot of people write posh because they don’t know how to write well.

We’ll help you write well. We’ll help you past the fear of the blank screen. We’ll help you create documents, reports, e-mails and letters that achieve what you want, efficiently and effectively.

And we’ll do it in a way that won’t bore you out of your skull. A lot of writing programmes make the participants think they’ve gone back to school. Ours don’t. If you don’t laugh, you get your money back (unless you never laugh, in which case it’s not writing skills training you need).

You’ll learn about structuring documents, paragraphs and sentences. You’ll get your grammar and syntax gently massaged. You’ll gain the ability to spot second-degree words, to tell active language from passive and to identify weak intensifiers, blended metaphors and over-long sentences. And you’ll have some myths de-bunked, like the one that says you can’t start a sentence with ‘and’ (trust us, we’re right on that one).

You’ll get exercises, and you’ll have to do a fair bit of writing, but not enough to make the whole experience torturous.
