What delegates say about Mastering the Art of Writing:
The session was extremely useful and offered a good balance of interaction, advice and tips and feedback.
Very helpful -really crystallised for me the key things to think about before I embark on a writing task
Very useful, particularly around structuring and writing and how to approach different types of writing. The grammar bit was scary but useful!
It was very useful. I learned much more about business writing generally, and I'll definitely be putting what I've learned into practice.
I enjoyed the fact that it was broken up with info and activities. Also that it was tailored to what we were doing.
Very useful. Tailored to our needs.
Very useful. There are lots of basic skills covered, that, as a junior, you're not taught in PR
The course was 'hands on' rather than having the info simply presented to us. We were taught how to put the skills into practice.
Would you recommend the course to a colleague? Definitely. I feel that both junior and senior team members could benefit from this course.
Lorraine was a great presenter. Good mix of presentation and activities.
