Core writing skills

Discover the secrets of good writing

Developing and improving any skill takes time, practice and commitment. Writing is no exception. However, we know that fund management professionals are busy people who don’t have much time to spend on honing their writing skills.

This intensive one-day workshop, therefore, takes a pragmatic approach to helping delegates write better – focusing on simple points of good writing style that can make the biggest difference.

We share four secrets of great writing, identify four mistakes to avoid and introduce three techniques for becoming a more efficient writer – always with an emphasis on the demands of writing about fund management.

A variety of practical exercises helps to embed the learning. Each delegate receives peer and trainer feedback on a longer writing exercise at the end of the day and takes away a three-point plan to improve their writing in the workplace.

An in-house core writing skills workshop for up to 10 people costs £3,350.00* or £3,850.00* if customised using texts supplied by the client.

We also offer a deluxe version of this course, with individual written feedback from the trainers for each delegate. The cost of a deluxe course is £6,000.00* for up to 10 people.

For further information or to book a course, please contact the course directors.

*These prices are valid until 31 December 2019 and assume that the course will be held in central London, Edinburgh or Glasgow. For courses in other locations, we will charge travel and accommodation expenses.

Prices are negotiable for block-bookings of in-house courses.
