Our Specialty: Business Writing Workshops

Would better writing skills enhance your effectiveness?

Since 1990, we have been helping employees and managers write better. We do this through practical in-house, online, and public business writing courses and train-the-trainer (TTT) programs. Located in Seattle, Washington, we travel to client companies and training facilities in the Pacific Northwest and far beyond, and we offer online writing classes for individuals and teams working around the world.

In our courses, participants get tools, tips, strategies, job aids, and follow-up resources to help them write better—guaranteed. We promise that every employee or manager who participates fully in a business writing course with us will write better.

In our train-the-trainer programs, learning facilitators get complete turnkey classes with slides, participant materials, scripts, customization tips, and much more.

“When I managed training for a progressive Seattle company, I discovered Syntax Training while looking for a business writing workshop. After experiencing just one of Lynn’s workshops, it was obvious that we had found a powerful training partner.”

John Cline, Learning & Development Manager, Vancouver, British Columbia

Unless your company is a rare exception, your employees and managers dread many of their business writing projects. They aren’t sure where to start, what to emphasize, or how to arrange complex information. Often you don’t have to survey them about their need to develop writing skills. The signs of ineffective writing are abundant.

The good news is that employees and managers can quickly improve their skills in business writing workshops that provide practical information, tools, tips, models, skill practice, and feedback. That is what we provide.
