After David's weeklong course in 2012, I immediately brought back the tools and methods he provided—and which I had not seen before—and developed a master strategic plan to focus our messages in a time of increasingly reduced resources. This led to a mindset shift in a very archaic public affairs organization. We actually lowered opportunity costs, inefficiencies and conducted an optimization resulting in more labor hours available and a higher return on effort. In fact, one of the recipients of David's training dramatically increased their Facebook followers and "likes" while another increased their readiness levels from 30 percent to more than 62 percent by the third quarter 2013.

Our programs fit your needs
David Lipscomb is the best writing trainer I know. He has provided writing training for more than 10 years to my teams at two different global companies. At Kellogg, David is our go-to writing trainer because he develops customized and engaging programs that bring the latest approaches, resources and training tools to our teams. Of all the training resources we provide to our team each year, David’s are always the most highly regarded. I assure you his training will exceed your expectations.
—Adaire Putnam, senior director, external communications, Kellogg
I would highly recommend working with David. He spent time with me before the course understanding the team, our challenges and what we hoped to accomplish. He developed tools that met our specific needs, engaged the team throughout the day and held a follow-up session to answer question and ensure we were able to apply what we learned and practiced in the workshop. The team enjoyed the class and has been using the writing checklist since then. They felt ownership over the guide because of David’s engagement of them throughout the workshop, and we’ve incorporated it into our annual performance reviews to make what we learned a part of our team norms. The team’s writing and ability to connect with our donors has improved since the workshop.

Our training is fun—and it lasts
David and I have a long-standing relationship, from vendor, to colleague to business partner. He's been engaged on multiple learning initiatives in various settings—and is so smart, creative and enthusiastic. One of the most engaging trainers I've had the pleasure of contracting on behalf of employees and companies. His training tools and methodologies make the learning fun, memorable—and, most of all, make it stick. The writing and communications skills of colleagues improve the day of the event and long thereafter. I would recommend him to those looking to advance their talent—and to provide them with training that extends for long term of their careers."

I have had the great pleasure of working with David Lipscomb in three instances. I attended one of his web writing workshops at the Center for Continuing and Professional Education at Georgetown University, and then recommended him for a workshop held for staff at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And, most recently, I hired David to hold a workshop for staff at Grantmakers for Children, Youth, and Families. In all instances, I found David to be a remarkable trainer with the highest expertise and top-notch interpersonal skills. Along with sharing his knowledge of the latest research and best practices in communications, he demonstrates respect for writers at all levels of experience, resulting in positive trainer-trainee relationships that are crucial to imparting skills that "stick."
