Feedback from delegates was incredibly positive with one person stating that they learnt for from spending an hour with Melissa than all their years at school. I highly recommend Melissa and her practical approach to improving communication.”

Writing training for paraplanners

Whether you are writing suitability reports, letters, emails or articles, your messaging needs to be clear, simple and easy to follow.  

With so much technical information to convey, it can be challenging to discern what a consumer actually needs to know, in contrast to what you’d like to tell them.  Being concise, whilst still demonstrating your credibility, can also prove to be difficult. 

However, complex ideas don’t have to sound convoluted and clear disclosure doesn’t have to be dull. The business writing courses for paraplanners is here to help you write with precision and character.
