Meet the Instructor – Plain Language: Building Results

Graham Young

Graham Young is an independent writer, trainer and communications consultant with more than 30 years’ experience helping business and government clients communicate at work. It is not an understatement to say that he can compose anything. He writes web content, annual reports, brochures, promotional flyers, data sheets, case studies, white papers, sales letters, advertorials, magazine and newsletter articles, news releases and speeches. Since 2000, he has conducted more than 500 writing and presentation-skills seminars and taught some 6,000 participants from the public, private, and non-profit sectors how to write and speak effectively.

The most powerful language is also the simplest. When each word has a clear meaning and purpose, readers can move easily through a text and focus on its message. Unfortunately, much writing today is needlessly bureaucratic and difficult to read. The challenges include poor organization, wordiness, jargon and poor page design. Plain Language: Building Results will help you overcome these pitfalls and create documents that say what they mean—efficiently. Throughout the day, individual and group exercises will give you a chance to apply plain language to real-life passages. Whether you’re a seasoned editor looking to affirm your approach or a newcomer eager to jumpstart your career, Plain Language: Building Results will help you achieve your writing goals.
