Business writing coaching

Write better, faster and more easily

For: People who need to write business communications that produce results, including reports, white papers, strategies and emails

Professionals who write well can achieve more in less time. So, they tend to be highly valued by their clients and senior colleagues.

They produce clear, concise communications which others can understand easily and act upon quickly.

They adjust their tone so that they build relationships while still getting things done.

They can use their writing skills to review and sign-off their team members’ work. If required, they can take minutes or meeting notes which others can rely upon.

They minimise credibility-busting errors by proofreading their own work effectively and using Microsoft’s time-saving tools.

On top of all that, they can write efficiently so that emails are responded to swiftly and reports are finished on time.

Become a better writer with coaching

With one-to-one coaching sessions, you can develop these skills and become an excellent business writer yourself.

Your coaching sessions will be tailored for you so you can focus on your biggest writing challenges. You will use your own communications in the exercises. You’ll see how better writing techniques produce better results for you and your organisation.

After your coaching sessions, you will be a stronger writer and a more productive professional.

I have worked with Margaret on two occasions. Her coaching reduced my high anxiety about writing, and equipped me with the tools I needed to write succinctly and with impact. I still apply her methodology and tips to all my writing today.

Her sessions gave me the confidence to deliver high quality written work for my clients, and write about my company effectively. I highly recommend her services.

Annette Crosse, CEO, Egality Health

Margaret has made a significant difference in my writing. She has helped me with litigation reports that need to describe complex economic arguments to arbitrators in a clear and succinct way while also referring to the arguments put forward by other parties in multiple reports.

Her lessons on how to plan the writing and all the steps that lead to an efficient and results-oriented writing process have been particularly helpful. In addition, she provided me with very good guidance on how to implement the lessons learnt.

It’s been a pleasure to work with her. I have recommended Margaret to several colleagues who have already started working with her.

Pablo González Pinillos, Manager, Frontier Economics (Spain)

Margaret coached one of our managers on their writing style. We saw immediate improvements in their reports and their confidence also increased.

In the past, we have commissioned writing training for staff – but having one-to-one coaching meant that our colleague had individualised help and support to improve their writing style.

Margaret is wonderful to work with. She’s professional, an expert in her field and a truly lovely person to work with.
