Fantastic course, good mix of new models, tips and tricks, and also going back to basics.
Alison L
I totally enjoyed the day. It has given me the confidence in going forward to undertake report writing.

Wendy was really friendly, professional and kept us engaged throughout with lots of opportunities for participating. The structure of the course was easy to understand with time to take short breaks too.
The course was enjoyable, concise and specific – hopefully like our writing now!
Muriel A
I really appreciated the concrete examples of reports and MoMs taken from our organisation, it directly speaks to us. And the rephrasing exercise as well. The training officer was very clear and friendly.
Sarah W
I really enjoyed the course. It covered a lot of the concerns we have re. virtual comms and contained some useful tips delivered in a friendly and informative way
Nicole H
Doug was a great presenter – explained things well and led by example. Use of polls and breakouts was great for engagement.

Melissa kept everyone engaged. She was precise with her explanation. I enjoyed the workshop and value the feedback on the writeup. Overall it was very useful.
Taylor S
Thanks for the great examples and insight! I took the persuasive policy one last year, but this provided additional material specific to reports that I find very useful.
Kyle C
Really great instruction done virtually. Very engaging instructor (Wendy Ferguson).
James Z
Best course I've been on at Octopus, would highly recommend (particularly to younger people)
Natalie J
I am aware of my punctuation and 'active voice' as I write this, which tells me the information was useful! Thank you David for making a dry subject very engaging. I found the section 'improving readability' extremely helpful. I would recommend this course to others.
Ross M
One of the best courses I have done. Fast paced but at a good tempo.
David G
Excellent course. (Unsurprisingly) well structured and clear.
Sabina H
It's great when these courses take into account the type of writing we're undertaking in our day to day work. The analysis on previous writing was also very helpful
Emma P
The course has provided me with some really practical steps to help me improve my writing style and given me the confidence to try a few different styles rather than reverting to type
Rachael C
The course was thorough, well-organised and well-delivered. I really appreciated the opportunity to take part
Lynne M
Excellent course leader: very knowledgeable, very personable, made very good use of time, and provided valuable course content. One of the best courses that I have attended. Thank you
Reina V

Excellent course, pitched correctly and the teacher was excellent
Carl W
The course was put together extremely well and tailored to our specific needs. Very interactive and well presented
Madison C
Wendy was brilliant, extremely engaging and had a wonderful way of teaching across the broader group. Also very mindful of cultural differences, which was so helpful from a global context.
Rafael C
Wendy is an excellent teacher and kept us engaged. Highly recommend this course to anyone in finance or business.
The analysis of the internal documents was very useful to identify general writing issues
Trudy T
The length of the course and the content were absolutely right! I take my laptop wherever I go and had planned to keep up with my emails while there...but I didn’t. I texted a colleague before the course and said I was on a “bored” writing course! expecting it to not be relevant or condescending – none of those, best course I’ve attended in ages!
