Online Writing & Editing
Self-praise is no recommendation
so take the word of former workshop participants:
"The course gave me a fresh understanding of how to better present content. Yvette clearly teaches best practice and ways to improve web sites - today - right now. An explanation of why it has become best practice helps you to appreciate why you need to change your site - it is not just because someone has told you to do it. This also helps with justifying changes to managers.
The best part of the course was the opportunity to sit down and apply the theory to your own web site. Yvette provided an opportunity to understand the time and effort required to improve a single page, with a little coaching on the site. It is not often you are provided with the 'space' to sit and write for the web. Now the challenge is to find the time while at work to undertake the changes required to improve our web site." - Allyson Luders, BRS Web Co-ordinator, Bureau of Rural Sciences
"Excellent content, knowledge and presentation - will definitely recommend." - Leanne Brown, Scientist, Bureau of Rural Sciences
"Yvette has the uncanny ability to make complex issues sound simple and interesting at the same time. I couldn't wait to get back to working on our web site - I was left bursting full of ideas from the workshop." - Senior Communication Officer
"Sharp, concise and relevant, Yvette's personable method of getting her message across makes the workshop invaluable for anyone involved in web writing and design." - Communication Officer
“I update my company’s website and distribute a monthly e-newsletter, but haven’t had any specific training in this area. Yvette’s web writing and e-newsletter workshops were exactly what I needed. After attending these excellent workshops I feel much more confident and able to experiment with improving my company’s online communication. The workshop handouts are extremely useful and I will undoubtedly refer back to them in the future." - Terri Telford, Econnect Communication, Brisbane.
“Yvette created a supportive atmosphere in the workshop where no question was too stupid to be asked. She was very approachable and easy to listen to – speaking in plain English without any jargon.”
