What People Say

What Marco Formaggio, Director of Innovation and Strategy, Bluleader, says - Watch here. 

'Hi, my name is Marco from Blueleader. We’re a technical consultancy and we’ve just done a course on Business Writing with Nina Sunday. We’ve got a lot of value out of it because we do a lot of technical, complicated writing. It was good to learn how we can simplify and effectively communicate with our customers; to be seen and perceived as a more professional organisation.'


What to Expect

The live online workshop component is two and a half hours, delivered with Nina Sunday in person as your facilitator. Not only will Nina explain Business and Report Writing, but you can ask your questions all the way through. It is expected everyone attending the masterclass has already viewed the online minicourse (5 x 2-4 minute videos).

‘I was impressed and inspired by the content of the training. Often training sessions use theoretical concepts that are rarely used in practice. In contrast I found the practical tools you demonstrated relevant and have used them in many report and business and business writing contexts since.'
Emma Whitehead, Program Coordinator, General Practice Queensland
‘Learned how to write with purpose, fewer words, writing active voice.’

Julie Twomey, Program Facilitator, Townsville General Practice Network
‘Good exercises, clear examples, great workbook, excellent variety, knowledgeable facilitator.’
