Training and Coaching

What our clients' say about our programs:

"Andrew is an exceptional trainer. We hired him to train our L.A. office on writing skills and best practices for PR. He did such an amazing job that we flew him to both our New York and San Francisco offices to conduct writing workshops there. Andrew tailored each training session to meet our specific needs. He is patient and his sessions have been a huge benefit to our agency. Whenever we need training, Andrew is the only person we will contact." — Jennifer Krivanek, Atomic PR.

"Thank you for the engaging and informative workshop today. Our team took away a lot of useful PR writing concepts and techniques, and the hands-on review of our in-class writing assignments was time well spent. Your background as both a journalist and a corporate communicator was especially helpful, as we PR folk are always trying to better understand the media mind." — Kyra Lausmann Dauer, Account Director, Castillo & Ruig Communications

"Our PR firm wanted to bring our staff's writing to the next level and develop a more consistent company style. We hired The In-House Writer to come in and give us their PR Writing Tune-UpTM. It turned out to be extremely worthwhile. Everyone on the team found the class engaging and informative and came away with specific techniques they could put to use immediately in their daily assignments." —Jessica Meisels, Partner, Fingerprint Communications

"Andrew Hindes recently presented a portion of The In-House Writer's 'PR Writing Tune-Up' to my Public Relations Writing classes at Pepperdine.

In grading the students' recent news releases, I can tell that their writing has benefited mightily from his sharing his writing expertise." —Kathy Shores, Public Relations Professor, Pepperdine University

"Thanks for speaking, once again, to my UCLA Extension class. Your strategies on writing publicity materials are extremely valuable to students. We all got a great deal from your presentation. I deeply appreciate you taking the time to join us," —Henri Bollinger, Principal, Henri Bollinger & Associates and UCLA "PR in Practice" Instructor
