    Business Writing Training Course Reviews:

    "Diane energized the class by encouraging active participation and sprinkling humor throughout the training, motivating participants to interact with the program. She asked each participant their writing weakness personalizing answers to each concern. Diane kept strict control of the time frames, including lunches and breaks keeping the class on schedule. 

    Diane has complete knowledge of all aspects of the training program. She focused on the topics that we requested, presenting it with enthusiastic energy that captivated the participant’s interest. She provided handouts that complimented the manual with additional information relating to the writings that we routinely use.

    Diane is a skilled instructor and motivating speaker. The entire class gave positive feedback on her performance. We look forward to her training the second class for the remaining employees."

    "The presenter showed great concern for the comfortably of the attendees'. The session also was a great refresher course. There were a few things I found to be most useful and will make it a point to apply it daily."
