"Testimonials" *

"A practical, enjoyable and insightful course ... providing an interesting reminder of how much I had forgotten and how easy it is to get into bad habits! The course material is both useful and accessible, and will undoubtedly prove invaluable in the workplace, where I intend to put into place some of the skills practiced during the course."
- Debi Strawson, Perenco, Gt Yarmouth.

"Lots of useful ideas and smart tips to make technical writing less scary - whether you are updating an existing manual or writing from scratch."

- J. Taylor, Manager, Employee Communications and Development, RSPCA.

 "This course is really going to save me precious time. I would recommend it to anyone who has to write and maintain any type of document. "

- Kyla Young, Operations Manager, Dataflow Communications.

 "The most interesting parts for me were the exercises because I like the ‘hands on’ approach. I find ‘to do’ is the best way for me to learn. I also liked sharing ideas with my colleagues and having the time to think about how we can move forward with our documentation project. I valued Philip’s input and suggestions."
