The running machine is where I catch up on what’s hot and what’s not in the music world. I’m afraid the grammar geek in me couldn’t get over one lyric this morning. Great new song by Ramz – “Barking”. But his line “7 a.m. in the morning”… When else could 7 a.m. be? He could so easily have changed it to “7 o’clock in the morning”…
Cathy’s had a lovely week, with a real mix of training delivery:
Three courses for lawyers at different global firms – one on “white-water drafting” (the scary bits of legal drafting), one on getting the right approach (risk allocation etc) and one on client-friendly drafting.
Three business services training sessions for law firms in London and in Newcastle, two on good business writing and one for senior managers on writing to influence.
Add in some one-to-one coaching slots for business services staff at yet another law firm and you have the perfect week as far as Cathy’s concerned!
Thank you to all our clients, and enjoy the weekend.
A lovely surprise just now! A hamper of goodies arrived from someone I worked with earlier in the year to develop her skills at writing client alerts on legal topics. I was tough on her but she took it all on board in good spirit and has worked at it since then. The success of the one-to-one sessions depends so much on the individual committing to developing even after we finish the coaching. I’m always thrilled when the firm sees a clear improvement. I don’t need any thanks other than that, but it’s great when someone appreciates the support!
Off to Moscow next week to train Russian lawyers on legal writing and drafting in English. It’s so impressive to see people handling complex legal English when it’s their second language.
