Are you in the process of planning in-house development workshops or planning your own development for the coming academic year? Are you looking for topics that will help you and/or colleagues to expand your or their confidence and skills in absorbing, analysing, storing and communicating information? If so you may find – as many other HE/FE academic staff and administrators have – that interactive workshops in effective business/report writing, speed reading, memory techniques and Mind Mapping can lead to huge gains in productivity, creativity and team morale.

Word Smiths workshop brochureWord Smiths have many years’ experience in running these workshops. We offer a cost-effective, all-in option which includes post-event support in the form of an email hotline and a copy of the relevant audio book (Speed Reading for Success, Memory and Learning for Success, Effective Business Writing for Success) for each participant.

Because we are a small independent partnership we have full control over every aspect of the training we design and deliver. Here’s a link to our downloadable brochure which has more details of all Word Smiths workshops.

Our workshops are very interactive events, so we normally recommend a maximum of 14 delegates. But this isn't an absolute limit - it's just that with larger numbers it's more difficult to make sure that every delegate is fully involved.

We offer a reduced fee to educational institutions and all expenses are charged at cost. In addition, we have low administrative overheads so our fees are very competitive.

If you know roughly how many people might be interested in attending one of these development workshops, email Word Smiths and we will get back to you with an inclusive quote which covers course fee, materials and all expenses.
