Rhubarb Rhubarb Training

Like it or not, we’re all writers at work. Reports, proposals, marketing collateral, web copy, bids, pitches and emails – writing takes up a big chunk of the working week. Yet most of us have never been taught how to make our business documents shine. 

Rhubarb Rhubarb’s leading lady Debra Blundell aims to put this to rights. She runs hands-on, practical training courses, workshops and e-learning events that help business people produce written work that’s more professional, readable and effective. The emphasis is on learning through fun. There’s plenty of serious content and real-life examples, but it’s packaged in a way that makes learning enjoyable and encourages even the wallflowers to take part.


Every company has different writing challenges, so we prefer to build courses to order, based on what you want to achieve, how many people you need to train, and how long you have. But, if you just want to get stuck in, we have off-the-shelf writing courses too.

If you’d like to know more about Rhubarb courses (either made-to-order or ready-made), or just fancy a chat about training in general, Debra would love to hear from you at debra@rhubarbrhubarb.com
