The Text Doctor LLC
The Text Doctor offers individual virtual or in-person coaching to writers and interactive technical writing webinars to organizations and corporations.
If you have experienced The Text Doctor’s classes before, you know how effectively Bette Frick teaches writing and communication skills, all in an environment that engages learners and keeps them wanting more. Yet today, formal classroom training can be tough to pull off. Employees are more likely to be working remotely or scattered geographically meeting space is at a premium and with work and personal demands greater than ever, everyone is distracted and overloaded.
Of course, those are exactly the conditions that demand top-notch communication skills. The more complex things get, the more critical clear communication becomes for keeping projects running smoothly and clients happy. That’s where The Text Doctor’s webinars come in. They offer the same great training in communication that Dr. Frick offers in the classroom, but in a convenient format that works with today’s hectic schedules.
The Text Doctor’s webinars cover a range of communication topics, from business writing to effective e-mail. To promote and ensure interaction, all classes have a maximum course size of 25 people.
All webinars are delivered using Citrix GoToTraining, an easy-to-use platform and industry standard. Employees learn at their desks, watching the presentation and listening by phone or headset. Dr. Frick registers all prospective learners and the system sends reminders to enrollees. Learners participate in polls and chats to increase interactivity. Learners receive handouts after the webinar and if they miss the webinar for any reason, can watch the recording within 7 days.
