Business Writing Training

Do you and your team members want to learn tips and tricks to write better?  Business Training Works can help. From better email to stronger reports, we will give you the tools to make the writing process easier and your final product stronger. For more than two decades, we’ve offered business writing courses and workshops to groups of all kinds. During our time in the classroom, we’ve learned what works and what doesn’t when it comes to designing and delivering an effective writing program.

Our Workshop Facilitators

When working with us, we will partner you with an instructor who has published and understands what it takes to move a document from the beginning of an idea to a polished product.

A Feel for Our Writing Courses

Our business writing courses are hands-on workshops focused on the skills participants need to do their work better. Our approach to writing instruction is down to earth and fun. We don’t dwell on theory. Instead, we focus on exercises, activities, practical guidelines, and tools.

In our years of facilitating these workshops, we are proud to report we have yet to have someone flashback to a hated English class. In fact, people often tell us they finally understand some aspect of writing that, up until that point, had never made sense.

Workshop Relevancy

Samples: Our writing workshop participants learn best when they’re working with documents relevant to them and their organization. For that reason, we often request samples before the start of a course. If you cannot provide us with samples, however, we have a robust library of material from which we can pull.

Assessments: From time to time, our clients request a skills assessment. To accommodate those requests, we can administer a range of assessments either before or after training.

Course Formats

Our specialty is onsite business writing training for groups, and this page lists the writing programs we offer in an onsite format. Additionally, because of current events and advances in technology, we have transitioned or can transition some courses to an instructor-led online format.

Note on Course Length: We offer some of our writing workshops in varying lengths, and often people ask us to explain how a half-day, full-day, and multi-day session differ. The most notable distinction learners will experience is the amount of time allotted to practice concepts. 

Our Range of Programs

Our workshops cover an array of subjects: business writingtechnical writingpolicy and procedure documentationstyle-guide usageproofreading, and editing.
