Improve your writing at work

We're dedicated specialists in professional writing training.

It's what we do and what we love – from answering a tricky question about apostrophes, to transforming the writing of your entire organisation.

About us

The business-writing trainers

Emphasis have an unrivalled reputation for delivering writing-skills training that works. Since we started out in 1998, we’ve helped more than 30,000 people produce first-class business writing, through our courses for teams and individuals. They contact us from blue-chip companies, government departments, law firms, universities, charities, accountancy firms – in fact, anywhere where email and documentation is used widely to communicate with customers or colleagues. You can view our client list here.

Specialist business-writing consultants

A successful business-writing company is only as good as its people. So we make sure all our trainers and business writing consultants have a background in professional writing – as do many of our office staff. We’re English language teachers, journalists, publishers, writers and editors. Our backgrounds give us the depth of knowledge to tackle even the most complex writing challenges. Meet our team here.

High standards of training

We’re a real company, not a three-letter abbreviation, and we provide a service to match. We never farm work out to associates, preferring instead to develop all courses in-house and use only our own writing experts.

Although our trainers are all business-writing specialists in their own right, they still have to complete a detailed trainer-training programme themselves before they can work with clients. So when you work with us, you can be certain it will be with someone who knows their subject and who can transfer their knowledge sensitively and effectively.
