Writing with Clarity & Impact for Government Seminar


Online Seminar
13 August 2024 | 9:00 am - 1:00 pm AEST

Do you want to become a more skilful and confident writer at work? The importance of writing well cannot be overstated. Words, and how we arrange and use them, affects how our audience ‘hears’ and ‘perceives’ us.

Effective writing conveys your message or information with 100% clarity to your audience. In good writing, everything makes sense and readers don't get lost.

Crafting effective writing requires regular, deliberate practice. Attending this seminar will set you up for success with your writing and readability skills.

Megan’s experience working with and for the government gives her the practical insight required to teach and train you to write in a way that will allow well-informed decision-making and provide better quality information to decision-makers.
