Plain English training

Business marketing has changed in this crazy world of social media. We speak in tweets, text-talk, symbols, emojis and memes. No one seems to have time to read proper words and take it all in any more.

That’s why we have to stay clear and to the point whenever we write. Whether it’s directly to customers about important issues or to a wider audience on social media, using plain English is vital for getting your message across clearly.

This popular half-day workshop will have you writing more effectively in just one hour. You’ll improve your writing style while gaining all the skills you need to shorten text for web content, blogs and tweets. 

  • Stay professional but be more friendly – especially on social media.
  • Avoid jargon and waffle – get right to the point.
  • Cut out unnecessary words – perfect for Twitter.
  • Rephrase complicated sentences – vital for social media content, blogs, tweets and posts.
  • Know the difference between the active and passive voices – and choose the right one.
  • be more understandable for your clients – crystal clear transparency for fantastic customer service.
  • Be appropriate for the medium – letters, emails, website content, social media – great for improving quality standards – no ambiguity
