Customised courses | Corporate Whether your business is small or large, creative or corporate, clear effective communications with your staff, customers and suppliers are essential. If you understand each other, you can do better business, increase customer confidence, and save time and money. The Chalk the Sun Programme Directors, Jo Hepplewhite, English Language Lecturer and ex-TV producer, and Ardella Jones, former stand up comedian, lecturer, and writer for Southerly Communications, understand the psychology of interaction and the importance of clear concise English.


We offer a fun, but practical, training event to improve grammar, punctuation and structure for the people in your company who need to write clearly but may lack the confidence and techniques to do so. We can ensure that your staff write reports more effectively  and use professional language appropriate to your service area. Our tutors have wide experience of  the public and voluntary sectors including Housing and Social Services.  Accurate  recording of evidence is vital for our customers; for their clients it could be the difference between life and death. Half day or full day courses to your specification.


From addressing your team meeting to giving your first TV interview, presentation is an increasingly important part of corporate life. Chalk the Sun can help you prepare content and deliver it with style.


Creative writing is a fun way of breaking the ice, fostering good relationships and increasing co-operation between your staff, as well as adding some essential communication skills. Why not contact us to talk about how we can customise our training to suit your company and time slot?


Ardella and Jo from Chalk the Sun delivered an excellent workshop on report-writing skills that all our employees enjoyed. They understood the needs of our business and created relevant materials and activities. The event created a great opportunity for sharing good practice and team building among our out-reach workers who do not get together often. Most importantly, this month’s report writing has shown a significant improvement. We would definitely use Chalk the Sun again in the future.
