Full Stop Mentoring offers a real time, immediately reactive and interpersonal mentoring service to develop business writing skills with staff whose first language might not be English.
Editorial skills development is a key point of strategic concern for many South African companies, media and communication agencies. In an economy where English is the de facto language of communication, but where the home language of the staff member could be any of eleven options, it's a mission-critical challenge to deliver high quality services to clients while still giving talented employees the necessary room to develop and grow.
Full Stop Mentoring uses online project management technologies to provide a real-time, collaborative mechanism for ongoing editorial development. Mentors work with individuals and project teams in the virtual project space to assess editorial approach, writing style and execution and grammar – all within the context of their daily work.
The result is a neutral and nurturing envrionment for language development, where staff are supported by the tools and expert guidance necessary to analyse and assess their approach to the job at hand before attempting to deliver on it; and then to assess the results of their work against the stated objectives.
Full Stop mentors work with writers to evaluate the clarity and accuracy of their work, in the process laying a foundation for lucid, explicit and concise business writing – from ad copy to reports, proposals, press releases, training materials or any other document.
