Reg brought just the right amount of humour to the class, and managed the different personalities well.
He was in control of the class from start to finish. He was patient, answered all the questions we had, and made the course fun. He had tons of examples from his professional career which makes it easier to remember the lesson.
Audrey, Bell May 11, The exercises we did were excellent, they gave us hands-on opportunity to practice the learnings, and there was ample time to complete. I feel I came away with specific techniques and templates to help me hone my skills.
It was worth the 2 day investment. Very knowledgable and easy to learn from! Todd B May 10, Reg is a great instructor but this course lack material and could have been completed in one day. It is definitely does not warrant the cost of the course. A few less personal stories would speed up course.
Past Participant, LoyaltyOne Inc. Oct 12, The course was amazing. Franca did a fantastic job in keeping the class engaged Franca provided great tips and best practices which will be useful for my role at work.
I would recommend that the grammar course is combine with the effective business writing course. The benefits from both would be superb Past Participant, Canadian Investor Protection Fund Oct 11, Have all three courses offered Loved her story about when she came to Canada and beat all odds.
Thanks for always covering everything and letting quiet people have a chance or younger people. Reg was a fantastic instructor! I hope to take one of his courses again in the near future.
It was very worth my time. Past Participant, Kumon Canada Inc. Reg was excellent and took time to check for understanding from all while ensure completion of course. Past Participant, Esri Canada Mar 22, A good course with lots of relevant information for my job. I really enjoyed the section on Correspondence formats.
Two of the notebook activities were not very good, page 76 and page Page 76 the second item with the idea that the title of "marketing manager" should be capitalized is incorrect, see item 10 here, https: Also it mixed grammar and spelling errors.
The use of dashes in the text instead of commas confused a few people. Very professional, treats students like adults. Understands that some of the rules and advice are for our own safety - I especially appreciated that. The other most important part was how to creatively write materials and then edit for public consumption - just what I needed.
It is surprising how the lessons were appropriate for all of us. Some from government, some from large private or small private businesses. We got to work through all of the type of communications that cause problems, regardless of what we do. See the comment in the earlier section. I think she made the course, actually.
It is very useful material but needs a creative facilitator to convince the students to run through the examples "on stage", in front of others. I actually enjoyed it and I am a complete introvert.
Everyone else seemed happy and at ease also. Mar 16, Franca is a wonderful Teacher and makes sure that everyone understands before moving onto the next chapter. It was an excellent Course! I enjoyed the taking the course with Franca - she was audible loudclear and answered any questions clearly.This workshop is ideally suited to individuals looking to improve their skills in responding to Bids and RFPs with professionally written proposals.
