Comments on our writing training
Frank Chamberlin delivered a tailored writing workshop for our marketing team which we all felt to be invaluable. I am now confident that with Frank's insights and workshop notes, the team is focused on the audience and writing to generate results.

I just wanted to thank you for yesterday. The pace of the training was perfect for our group, you really kept it interesting and moving, which meant the day went so fast. Thanks so much, and keep an eye on our web pages, I am sure they will be greatly improved as a result of the workshop.

We engaged Action Words to present a workshop on plain English writing for a group of our educational support staff. The content contained lots of relevant exercises and was very well accepted by our people. We were very pleased with the outcome and consider it a very positive training experience.

The training yesterday was great, thank you. The content was really useful and I am already applying the lessons to some pieces I am working on today.

I was extremely pleased with the outcome of our one-day writing skills workshop with Action Words. It was perfectly pitched for our team. Frank made sure the material was relevant and usable. The attendees came away brimming with confidence. It was an excellent course that I thoroughly recommend to any organisations wishing to improve their communications.
Chris Washington-Sare Head of Fundraising & Marketing Greenpeace
The writing workshop was perfectly tailored to our needs, incorporating our brand standards and writing style. Whilst we had a diverse skill set in the course, beginners gained much value from learning about writing principles and our more advanced writers appreciated the reinforcement of writing fundamentals. Thank you.

Frank from Action Words came in and spent a day with our Corporate Communications team on improving our business writing skills. Every team member got real value from the session. Frank made the session very relevant to our work and was able reinvigorate our passion for words. This is a workshop I am very happy to recommend.

The course was relevant for all staff and has definitely been useful – no doubt about it. The sessions were well presented and the trainer’s knowledge of the topic was excellent.
