Marketing and business development writing workshop

Content is once again king. This half day, in-person, workshop will allow delegates to explore and practice a variety of writing styles – as a journalist, direct marketer, brand spokesperson, blogger, social media influencer and even salesperson. And to improve the effectiveness of various marketing and business development writing activities.

Delegates either need to bring along examples of their writing so that they can diagnose issues and create improved versions or briefs for future writing projects. Delegates may bring their laptops or pen and paper for the exercises.
