How long are the web writing workshops?
They can be designed to run a few hours, a full day or across two days, depending on your
needs and time restraints.
How many participants in a workshop?
I’ve run customised government content writing workshops for as few as five people, and as many as 50. The ideal number is around 15, as I can give each person individual attention.
How much do web writing workshops cost?
I create your training for your specific needs, so prices vary depending on your goals, participant numbers, length etc. You can be sure my rates are highly competitive.
What’s the training guarantee?
I’ve trained thousands of people in web writing, and continually develop my techniques to get the best results. Be assured I’ll put in the time and effort required to make sure your course achieves your goals.
However, if you feel your people don’t get value from the web content writing training, you won’t have to pay.
