perfect documents - training & editing

COVID-19 note: I am currently providing online training courses for staff working from home. The sessions use Zoom or Teams for one-on-one training or groups of 2-20. They are fully interactive, with the same content, exercises and examples as my in-person courses. Costs start at $200 per person.

Writing clearly and succinctly is a critical aspect of every public servant's role, yet many staff lack the skills and confidence to write well. As a result, your team's written products may not have the impact they should, and senior managers are forced to spend valuable time re-writing documents.

After more than 20 years experience writing and editing documents for the highest levels of government, I established Perfect Documents, a business dedicated to improving the quality of writing in the public sector.

With Perfect Documents, I remove the stress and wasted effort you face every day in producing high-quality and easily-readable documents, by:

  • training your staff in plain English writing for government
  • editing your team's written products using plain English.

I provide training courses in plain English writing, tailored for government, to improve your team's written products. I also specialise in editing Government reports, policies and other written products, using plain English, to ensure your messages are clear and concise.

My aim is to make your job less stressful by training your staff and delivering well-written documents so you don't need to spend as much time re-writing.

Please call on 0414 103 630 or contact me to schedule writing training for your team or describe the document you would like edited. I will provide an obligation-free quote and timeframe for completion.
