Persuasive Writing

Persuasive Writing is an increasingly vital skill in government and corporate communication. A strong writer can captivate readers and stakeholders and influences outcomes. It’s a critical skill in any organisational setting that will help you provide clarity and precision, build credibility and professionalism, and persuade your audiences.

In government and corporate communication, effective writing is used to convey complex information, policies and procedures; is fundamental to telling a good story; and is critical in creating a strong presence in digital spaces. If not done well, communication can become ineffective and lead to misunderstandings, confusion, and a lack of trust with your audience.

This is the ideal training if you’re trying to upskill your writing ability to be more powerful and increase your ability to persuade your audiences and stakeholders.


Our training packages can be customised to suit your needs and reflect your organisation/team goals and objectives. A pre-training consultation will be arranged to better understand your requirements and deliver a training package to suit your needs.
