Our Speakers:


Vivienne has over 25 years’ experience as a trainer and a writer. She specialises in training people to use a structured writing approach for their business communications, and also in using the approach herself to develop documents for clients.
Vivienne’s training covers a full range of business documents, including emails, business cases and proposals, reports, and compliance documents such as policies and procedures. Her approach provides writers with a consistent framework for developing clear effective documents in an efficient way. As a result, readers are provided with information that’s easy to find, easy to understand, and easy to act on.
Vivienne has delivered workshops for a wide range of private and public sector clients in Australia, as well as New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. She has also presented for professional associations including the Governance Risk and Compliance Institute (GRCI) and Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia (HFESA).
When she’s not teaching or writing, Vivienne also works in the Guest Experience division at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
