Emphasis Training – business-writing training and consultancy trusted by over 6,000 organisations and 60,000 delegates worldwide.

With over 20 years of experience delivering business-writing and communication-skills training, Emphasis has built an unrivalled reputation, reaching over 60,000 satisfied delegates across the globe. Today, everyone from individuals to entire companies can learn effective business writing and communication skills in a way that is efficient, interactive and engaging.

A tailor-made solution to training

We take care to tailor writing and communication-skills training programmes to the type of work you undertake in your organisation. We will analyse each company’s documents, reports or presentations to create a training programme that addresses your specific needs. In doing so, all content is delivered according to your organisation’s industry, tone and communication style. 

Areas of training include:

  • High-impact business writing
  • Presentation skills
  • Technical writing
  • Report writing
  • Bid, tender and proposal writing
  • Grammar and punctuation
  • Writing for the web
  • Email writing
  • Policy and proposal writing

Individual pre-course analysis

When it comes to writing and communication, a one-size-fits-all solution is simply ineffective. With Emphasis Training, each delegate has the opportunity to submit a writing sample for confidential analysis. They will then receive a document which clearly maps out their strengths and weaknesses in 15 critical writing areas. This means that delegates don’t have to self-diagnose their writing problems, plus they will receive reliable, constructive feedback. 

The same approach is true for presentation skills, where delegates are asked to complete a questionnaire and send in an existing slide deck for review. This helps our trainers understand their style, as well as the types of audiences they are presenting to.

A name you can trust

All our trainers come from a professional writing and communications background. With decades of experience in English teaching, publishing, writing and editing, each trainer is uniquely suited to handle the most difficult of writing or communications obstacles. As well as being business-writing and communications experts in their own right, all trainers are also subject to a train-the-trainer programme before they start running courses. 

From the private sector to public institutions, organisations from every sector and industry have chosen to work with Emphasis, including Google, Uber, Linklaters, JP Morgan, Coca-Cola, EY, Hewlett Packard, HSBC, London Business School and Marks & Spencer.
