Get the professional edge

So much in the business world happens in written form – reports, pitch documents, projects, marketing content and more. So it should come as no surprise that we are often called on to “wow” with our words. And if there’s one skill that separates the average from the excellent, it’s the ability to write professionally.

This course in Professional Business Writing will help you create powerful, persuasive business documents. The focus is on knowing who your target audience is and understanding how to grab their attention. We will teach you these methods, plus the pitfalls and cliches to avoid. The result will be increased confidence across all your writing, as well as the ability to produce outstanding tenders, proposals, reports and more.

By harnessing the power of clear and concise written communication, you will see immediate results for yourself and your organisation.

Included in this course:

  • The 10 golden rules of good business writing.
  • The fundamentals of effective and persuasive writing.
  • 5 essential steps to planning a document.
  • The 3 stages of planning, writing and reviewing your content.
  • Business writing DON’Ts.
  • Common writing mistakes (and how to avoid them).
  • The art of attraction – how to gain your reader’s attention.
  • Revising and editing to enhance readability.

Bonus: The Australian Business Style Guide
As part of this course, you will also receive a copy of the Australian Writers’ Centre’s Australian Business Style Guide (valued at $49). This is an excellent desk reference for day-to-day questions regarding style and grammar – created specifically for Australian workplaces.


Q: I already have fairly good writing skills. WIll I learn anything new?
A: Absolutely. In fact, this course is built for those who are already fluent and confident in written and spoken English. We want to help elevate you from the pack – and with just a few simple tips and clear guidelines, you’ll do just that. Participants are amazed at how quickly they progress from “good” to “great” to produce cohesive, better documents.

Q: Will this course be relevant to my industry?
A: The skills taught in this course are relevant to all written communications. They’re also skills that you will last a lifetime – transferable across different industries.

Q: What resources do I get to take away with me?
A: As well as receiving your own copy of the excellent Australian Business Style Guide for free, you will also receive a comprehensive set of course notes, exercises, easy reference guides, and cheat sheets for troublesome areas (such as apostrophes!) that you can share with everyone in the office.

Q: I work in customer service or support roles dealing with emails, letters and shorter correspondence. Is this the course for me?
A: In that case, we recommend a different course. Our course in Business Writing Essentials is better suited to your needs. It covers some of the same areas, but is tailored to the type of communication that is more relevant to those roles.

It's a great course – compact yet comprehensive, great presenter and good pacing, professional and good value for money.

Great content, great structure, great teacher. And considering you could spend twice as much to get someone pretentious treating you like an infant, this is so worth it.
