Ninja Writing

Shani Raja, Journalist.

“Shani Raja teaches top journalists how to improve their writing and has written and edited for some of the world’s biggest news organizations, including The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Financial Times and Bloomberg News. Shani has also taught advanced writing skills to professionals and edited for leading global companies from Microsoft and IBM to PwC. He also teaches journalism to undergraduates.”  Ref:

As behaviourists, writing good reports is an important part of our job and reflects our professionalism and our personality.  Writing clear and concise client and veterinarian reports requires practice and skill, and I found this course, taught by journalism lecturer Shani Raja, a useful insight into how to improve my written communication.  The course consists of a number of bite-sized lectures focussing on four key themes: narrative, paragraph, sentences and words.

I would highly recommend it for anyone wishing to improve their written communication, not only for client reports but for articles, blogs and use in every day life.  Further details can be found at:
