Reviews

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."

Client Site Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
