How to write better business copy

Do you want to improve your writing skills at work? Does a blank screen or page fill you with dread? Do your newsletters, Facebook updates, reports, emails, tweets, bids or press releases leave a lot to be desired?

This Bite-size session will introduce you to some techniques that will improve your writing skills the minute you get back to your desk. We’ll look at how to craft succinct, uncomplicated, attention-grabbing sentences, plus how to avoid management-speak and write in simple, straightforward English.

Finally, we’ll take a look at spelling, with some fun tips about how to remember the words that always trip you up.

The session will be highly interactive, fairly noisy and incredibly useful.


In this Bite-sized session you will discover:

  • How to write clearly and concisely.

  • How to produce better quality blogs, emails and other business copy.

  • How to get it right the first time, writing shorter emails etc.


Who For? Anyone at all who has to write for work. Beginners and mid-level writing ability, but plenty of experts in other fields need help with writing.


Who By? Judy Yorke is a journalist, editor, journalism tutor and trainer. She has been a journalist for 30 years and held senior positions on leading titles including Good Housekeeping and Woman. Her work is still published regularly in the Daily Mirror and BBC Good Food, among others.
