Training for the Real World

Tools come and go, and the learning curve never ends. It seems like every week there's a major new release of some software to learn.

On the other hand, Gordon & Gordon offers workshops based on enduring skills that won't soon go out of date.

Our workshops are specifically designed for:

  • technical writers seeking to polish their skills

  • marketing writers wanting to create persuasive messages

  • programmers and engineers looking to communicate more effectively.

These workshops attract staff writers, self-employed contractors and members of professional associations like the STC. Since 1998, many organizations have sent people to Gordon & Gordon workshops.

What's so special about a Gordon & Gordon workshop?

Participants appreciate our real-world approach... our hands-on exercises... and our extensive workbooks. Many people tell us they can't wait to go back to work and apply what they've learned!
