Business Communications Coaching

The fastest way to become a better business writer, presenter or creative

You can make the most of your own or your team member’s talents and technical skills with business communications coaching.

In coaching sessions, I share the techniques, tools and tricks-of-the-trade that the best communicators use. I help people to develop their strengths and tackle the problems that are holding them back.

Develop your own skills with business communications coaching

For individuals, coaching can help you develop the strong writing, presenting or creative skills that your clients or employer requires.

You’ll be able to communicate or create with greater impact. You’ll no longer have to rely on the academic techniques you learnt at school or university. Instead, you’ll have robust professional skills which will last your whole career.

Develop your team member’s skills with business communications coaching

For leaders and managers, coaching can amplify the value that your team member brings to your organisation.

I’ll show them how to share their ideas effectively and manage their work better. Then, they’ll be able to produce stronger communications more efficiently. Critically, they’ll be less reliant on others to review and fix their work for them.

Achieve long-term results with bespoke implementation resources

At the end of the coaching sessions, you or your team member will receive the following implementation resources:

  • A bespoke handbook with a checklist, notes, resources and all the slides
  • Tips for practising new skills in day-to-day work and projects
  • Notes to help managers and reviewers support continuing development

Then, you or your team member will have the knowledge, skills and resources needed to produce impactful communications that work for your audiences.

Coaching Sessions

Coaching for individuals

Coaching can help:

  • Employees who need to develop their skills or overcome a problem
  • Self-funded professionals who want to strengthen their skills for career development
  • Self-employed people and entrepreneurs who want to improve their business’s performance
Coaching for groups of individuals

Some clients ask me to coach each person in a team to raise the team’s overall performance.

Typically, I do this after a training programme to help each person quickly embed their learning in their work.

Coaching formats

We will use:

  • Zoom for writing, creativity and virtual presentation coaching
  • Face-to-face sessions for real-world presentation skills 
Confidentiality

If you would like to share confidential documents with me, we can put a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in place.

Your coaching sessions can focus on writing, presenting or creativity.

Testimonials

I had been delivering speeches for over two decades but had not received any formal guidance or development.

Margaret was excellent in coaching me in a structured approach — both from a content perspective and also on delivery and engagement. She is excellent at interpreting and disseminating technical detail and converting it to on-message delivery for specific audiences.

My style, confidence and, in turn, positive feedback has increased thanks to her guidance and advice.

Margaret is the type of communications expert that you want to have by your side when you need a supportive and knowledgeable partner. Her style is gentle and warm. But she is also professional, focused and highly competent, like that member of your team whom you trust with your toughest assignments.

If you want somebody to coach you so you can improve your writing skills and produce better communications, I could not recommend Margaret highly enough.

After being given a marketing and copywriting role at BKL, I was keen to build on my existing writing experience. I knew Margaret from her own work with BKL and was confident she would help me to develop my persuasive writing skills.

‘Friendly and professional’ may seem like a stock phrase but it sums up the coaching that Margaret gave me. Across a series of one-to-one sessions, I learnt about shaping the message for the target audience, writing headlines and highlighting benefits.

I now use these techniques in marketing communications for BKL, such as web pages, newsletters and press releases. I’m grateful to Margaret for her comprehensive guidance, which has impressed my colleagues too.
