Why Corporations and Nonprofits Need to Foster Creativity and Writing Skills
It's not always enough to do good and assume the public understands your value. An organization also has to be ready to translate its work into ideas that engage, enlighten, and persuade those it seeks to reach. Good storytelling is fundamental to demonstrating the merits and needs of an organization, especially when speaking directly to those who can provide the kind of support that allows an organization to serve its community well.
Whether a company is making a pitch for a contract or a nonprofit is trying to win a grant, strong writing skills will give them an edge, while poor communication skills will often knock them out of the running from the start. C-Suite officers and grant reviewers alike not only appreciate those who can state their case clearly and succinctly, but also demand it. They do not have the time, inclination or patience to struggle through a badly written, poorly put-together presentation, no matter how worthy the cause or potentially profitable the deal.
If you’re selling yourself, your business, an idea or a cause, the better you can communicate what you want or are offering, the more likely the chance of success. In our on-site corporate and nonprofit training seminars, our staff of professional journalists, educators, authors and editors can help inculcate such skills in you, your employees, and in the case of nonprofits, your staff – volunteers and paid workers alike.
Writing Workshops Dallas is a place where experienced, published professional writers share what they have learned in both the creative arts and in the art of business communications. Many have experience in marketing and advertising, as well as report-writing, technical writing and copywriting. Some have worked for nonprofits, while others have made their mark in corporate culture or in academia. Others have extensive experience in grant writing, or have taught grant-writing, business writing and composition or creative writing at local universities. Let these seasoned professionals share what they have learned through hard work and experience with you and with members of your organization. Let them help make you and your people better and more effective at communicating what you do, what you have to offer, and what you want from decision-makers and clients.
