Reviews
"In general I thought the course was very good. I left feeling very inspired by what I had learnt and would be be very keen to attend any other communications courses you have available and run by this tutor. Please keep let know if there are any available. I gained some really valuable feedback about my work and I really enjoyed the fact that at several places during the day we were tested on what we had learnt. A brilliant course!"

"The course ran very well. Keeping the course group relatively small had benefits, too, allowing good discussions to take place. Having learnt new methods through the tutor's teaching, I now feel I can get through my copywriting work more effectively."

"The session spent on the tool kit for improving writing was particularly useful, and the tutors insights were excellent. The amount of participation encouraged by the tutor was perfect, and led to a relaxed and richer learning experience."
