Who can this web writing training help?

It will benefit everyone in your organisation who writes for the web.

I have tailored workshop content for:

buy-in for creating web content in the new, more effective way.

“I would strongly recommend Simon’s workshop to anyone looking to better
connect with their website users. He offered so many practical insights into
how our organisation can improve its online communications and, judging
from staff feedback, it was time and money very well spent. We are all
feeling much more confident and inspired"

What's included in the workshop?

You have unique goals for your web content, and your writers have different
roles and skill levels.

So, I design your course content once we've discussed exactly what your staff  
and business need to achieve from the training.

Five things that never go missing are:

    • analysis of your current web content writing and a workshop designed to improve it
    • an 80+ page workbook
    • loads of practical writing exercises based on your web pages, emails, etc
    • plenty of healthy discussion
  • my delight at being able to help people become skillful, confident web writers.
