"My previous manager recommended that I do some writing course with the institution to refine my skills. I then did a bit of research on the organisation and the training offered.
Notwithstanding the efficient training coordinators and staff members that assisted me, I was given a discount on the basis that I was self-funding, definitely providing much needed relief. Creative Writing and Editing for Corporate Publications is the programme I registered for. The lecturers were extremely knowledgeable, subject matter experts that provided a clear-cut idea on current trends. The session was interactive and allowed us to share insights on what worked at different corporates, and the training material provided was practical and appropriate."
