Ken’s writing workshops received the highest evaluations of any training we’ve done in my five years here.
Kristi WilkinsSenior Director of Marketing CommunicationsPacific Gas & Electric
Participating in your course was one of my best experiences in the past few years. It was such a pleasure to be in a room full of people whose goal was to strengthen their writing, and you did a fantastic job of leading the class.
I am pleased to announce we will be modifying our press release format. The new format is in line with the recommendations of Ken O’Quinn, who has conducted the writing workshops for worldwide PR. While they may seem subtle, the changes are powerful when it comes to conveying a strong, clear message.
Kristin HollinsVice President of CommunicationsOracle
Ken O’Quinn is the best writing coach I have ever worked with.
The feedback from the 40+ communicators who participated in the workshops was overwhelmingly positive. He is passionate about good writing, and it is contagious when he presents. We’re already planning to have him back.
After working with Ken, I became a confident, creative writer and went on to have an award-winning consulting business. I would not be having this success were it not for the skills I learned from Ken.
