Business writing training

Is poor writing harming your reputation?

Poor written communication reflects negatively on your organisation, leading to misunderstandings and lost business opportunities. However, you can do something to protect your reputation.

The ability to plan and structure a piece of writing is an essential skill — and it can be learned.

Red Pony offers business writing workshops that teach the fundamental, eternal principles of clear communication.

We teach concrete, specific techniques that participants can use in their everyday work. Participants learn through a series of practical exercises that can be easily applied to any communication task.

We offer three options for our effective business writing workshops:
