Mike can help you, your staff and your clients bring out their creative skills and increase their productivity. As an experienced mentor and trainer, Mike knows the power of effective communication. It is a life skill that improves self-confidence and self-esteem enabling you to move ahead in your life and in your work.
Training is conducted informally and in small groups. Writing effectively and productively are skills that take time to develop. Mike has developed a unique course in effective writing skills that goes to the heart of combining creativity with productivity. You and your organisation can benefit from Mike?s skills developed over a lifetime of writing for his own business and for others.
Creativity means seeking a sense of seeking purpose in your writing, while productivity involves harnessing the full potential of your suite of office programs to create writings that enhance your brand image and deliver the outcomes you want to the audience you need to reach. Effective writing is an integral part of personal or business development and will add to your effectiveness and value to your organisation.
The series of courses in effective writing that Mike has developed has a modular structure that can be adapted to novices, intermediate and advanced computer users. Each course comes with a course manual and is delivered in face-to-face sessions.
Each module includes opportunities for class discussion. These courses include training exercises that can be accessed online or through a separate workbook supplied to course participants.
Classes are best conducted in small groups of no more than ten people. As well as his academic qualifications, Mike holds a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment from the Gold Coast Institute of TAFE.
At present these courses are being offered through the adult education department of the Gold Coast TAFE and to private clients by arrangement.
