Writing is Your Business Returns

A moment during cycle one level oneThis one is for folks based in Antigua. It’s an adult education class I first offered in 2016 for working people seeking to improve their facility with written communication in the workplace. This isn’t about learning to write like a pro, but learning to write with more confidence and communicate effectively.

This course was offered under the banner of Barbara Arrindell & Associates and will be again.

I try to create an environment where participants don’t feel intimidated by the process of writing. I operate from the premise that writing can be made accessible to everyone. This is especially so for people willing to invest in themselves and putting in the work. The 2016 course reviews suggest I succeeded – by which I mean the participants succeeded in meeting their goals.

“I think I have improved. I now look at my weak areas when writing.”

“I accomplished my goal of learning proper grammar usage and some proper sentence construction.”

“The overall training was good and I’ve learned how to structure my ideas.”

“Overall it was a productive course” … “It was worth the sacrifice.”

“I  am more aware of common mistakes.”

Convinced, yet?

Think about it.

Once you’ve made up your mind, see the flyer above for registration details.

About Dorbrene O’Marde

“Dobrene O’Marde was born on March 24th 1950 to James and Ruth O’Marde in Antigua. He grew up in the Ovals Area and started his education at St. Michael’s Primary. From there he went to Antigua Grammar School and then to The University of the West Indies where he graduated with a BSc in Physics and Chemistry.

Dobrene known to family and close friends as “FATZ” is married to Ingrid Williams from St. Vincent and is the father of 3 adult children –Kaloma, Kayode and Khari.

To say Dobrene is a well-rounded individual – no pun intended- is simply too mild a description for such a multi-faceted person.”

This is an introduction on one of our esteemed cultural workers and icons, Dorbrene O’Marde as presented during a public speaking class facilitated by Barbara Arrindell & Associates. Follow the link to read the entire piece.

Also, FYI, I teach written communication (Writing is Your Business) as an associate of BA&A. June sessions begin this week. Are you registered?
