PRACTICAL, UP-TO-DATE PROBLEM SOLVING
Practical, as it's based on my 20+ years training vastly different clients, with a huge variety of issues, as a content strategist, producer and web writing trainer. You'll learn from my experience!
Problem-solving, as I've worked with clients solving their companies' web content problems since 1995 - there's probably very little I haven't seen or dealt with by now!
"I loved/hated the writing exercises-but they were VERY valuable. As painful and difficult as they could be for me, it was the quickest method to point out what you do and don't know. With each one, you learn and improve a little!"
