Praise for The Essential Handbook For Business Writing

Praise for the EBE Business Writing Training Program

Des Gilling, Director of Essential Business English (EBE), was an invaluable resource to our company.


We found that a number of our staff needed training, both basic and advanced, in the art of “business writing”. Des worked with our staff on a multi-session series of seminars that included a comprehensive overview of everything a person needs to produce consistent written business communication.

One of the primary tools Des used, in addition to the handbook, was the incorporation of individual feedback for each participant. This allowed both the organization and participants to benefit and see clear improvement in their writing. Using the primary tool of The Essential Handbook For Business Writing, participants were delighted with the seminar series. Simply put—this method is “the best”.
