Prose&Coms  

We train people how to communicate and lead better in the workplace. We help them sharpen the critical skills they need to do their work effectively and build better human relationships with subordinates, peers, management and customers.

We believe that learners who are engaged in the learning experience retain more knowledge, can apply their skill immediately, and become more motivated and enthusiastic about their work. For this reason, our courses and workshops are interactive, practical and fun.

At Prose&Coms the learning implementation process starts with an assessment of your current ability to find the gap that indicates your learning needs.

Some of our courses may be just what you need to help you acquire a few more key skills to close that gap. Our expert trainers will help you gain these skills in no time at all. But maybe your learning needs are more particular. Maybe you require a course to be developed from scratch. We can develop exactly that course that will satisfy your learning needs.

Consistent business performance depends on employees who continue to learn and develop.
 

At Prose&Coms, we believe that employees who continually learn in both formal and informal ways become valuable assets to a business. Employees who buy into a learning culture become active participants in the learning organisation, and are proud about their own and the organisation’s achievement of success. People who continue to learn are more capable of finding ways to overcome challenges, and to adjust to changes in the industry and environment.


Learning and development can bridge skills-gaps, build knowledge-bases, and improve attitudes and behaviours. Effective learning programmes that encourage employees and teams to become highly effective participants in the organisation’s mission provide the company as a whole, as well as the individual employees, with benefits that make the cost and time a worthwhile investment.

 

 


 

 

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT OUR SERVICES

Here are some real words from real customers!

 

TECHNICAL REPORT-WRITING AND PRESENTATION SKILLS COURSE

I was inspired. The course is a valuable, interactive course, especially in terms of presenting. The impromptu element was excellent, because you don’t have time to overthink things and you learn to become aware of things mentioned before.
Magdaleen
SMEC SA Consulting

TECHNICAL REPORT-WRITING AND PRESENTATION SKILLS COURSE

I was quite skeptical when enrolling into the course. I thought that it would give me a template to work with when it comes to report-writing. Instead, I got the guide to design my own templates for any report, be it informative, investigative, or any other report. I enjoyed every moment, but found most benefit from the process that goes into planning the structure of the report. I also enjoyed the presentation skills and wish it could be longer. This course should be a requirement for anyone who deals with people. It actually opened my mind and I realised that there is a lot more that goes into technical writing to make it effective.
Ziyanda
DBI Consulting Engineers

WRITE FOR THE READER: INDUSTRY AND CORPORATE PUBLICATIONS

Thank you for the training you did with us. The course has given me the confidence to write articles in a manner that expresses my thoughts and concepts, this is one area I struggled with because I would have great ideas but would be unable to articulate them in my writing. I have since written for Destiny Magazine as an Expert contributor, Drum Magazine in their business profile feature as a business mentor, Your Business Magazine and some online publications. I must say, writing is no longer something I dread doing. I actually love it now.

THE WRITING COACH

Susan was great. She gave constructive criticism in a manner that instilled motivation, instead of despondency. At times I felt stupid, but her guidance and empathy picked me up again. She showed a genuine interest in my ability. Her final feedback was spot on. Her choice of wording was encouraging (did not make me feel hopeless), yet to the point, as these are areas that I generally struggle with.

THE WRITING COACH

Thank you. You have really made such an impact on me in the last few months. You have helped open up possibilities that I never dreamed existed and given me the confidence to pursue a more creative career option. You made me feel comfortable and allowed me to really explore without the fear of being judged.
Theresa
Coachee through SA Writers’ College

MAKE YOUR WRITING WORK

A real eye opener [to me] was: who your audience is in an e-mail, and knowing your audience; and establishing your credibility of who you are as a recruiter.
Nivina
Paton Personnel

WRITE PROPOSALS WITH PUNCH

The Hope Factory has adopted the proposal writing model that you facilitated to entrepreneurs and we’ll have this as a standard for the proposals we send.

The workshop was great. I now understand the importance of allowing clients to tell their own stories, giving them autonomy. I particularly enjoyed [giving] feedback on the article on a narrative practice.
