Business Writing

At Laurel Associates we teach people how to write concise, clear, reader-focused documents. The emphasis is always on writing in a style that helps the reader grasp key messages quickly and accurately.

Presentation Skills 

Presenting with Presence is not an off the shelf course - no two courses are ever the same.  We work closely with you to understand your specific needs and tailor our training for each situation.

About Us

Laurel Associates specialises in business writing and
presentation skills training.
We run in-house courses and offer individual coaching in all
aspects of work-related writing and oral communication.
We provide advice on document content, style and design,
including editing and proofreading services.
We work with clients to plan, deliver and rehearse presentations
for small internal groups (such as meetings) through to large
external audiences (such as conferences).

The Laurel Lounge

The Laurel Lounge offers public courses with a difference.  Course attendees are invited as guests to my home.

Over the years I have had innumerable requests for a place on my “next public course”. As I have only run in-house courses, this has not been possible.

Many people come from small businesses, have missed a course in their organization, or need the training sooner than the next scheduled in-house course.

“Lorraine Banks loves the power of language
and enjoys watching her clients improve
their communication skills.”
