I am a former national newspaper journalist, having been
Deputy Editor of The Weekly Telegraph, The Daily Telegraph´s
award-winning international weekly, for five years.
During 10 years at the top of the media, I also worked
on the business desks of The Independent and The European,
and freelanced for many publications from The Sunday Times
to national magazines.
Now, following a lifestyle change, I provide freelance
communication services, but with no less commitment, talent
and enthusiasm than I brought to newspapers.
You can read about my PR and publishing services on other
pages of this website. But here I want to talk about my
writing training and editing services...
The Information Age ought to be called the Information
Lost Age. Every organization is bombarding other organizations
and individuals with communications. But it is not enough
that everyone has the tools on their PC to be mini publishers.
If you don't do something to make your messages stand out,
they are likely to get lost.
The City of London is my main market. I have trained City
analysts to write investment notes that have become ´must
reads` among fund managers. I have taught management
consultants to write reports that ´turn on` clients.
I would love to teach lawyers to write English that is
easily understood. But you can`t have everything.
I have given training in other organizations outside the
City. I have taught assembly line workers to write staff
newsletters that their colleagues can´t wait to read.
In short I bring Fleet Street Flair to your communications.
I design each course to meet your specific requirement
and deliver it the way you want. One new format I am offering
is `byte-size learning´. I thoroughly read a client´s
work, then go and see them at their place of work - for
as little as an hour - with recommendations on how to improve
But I also provide conventional training for groups and
individuals on courses running from a few hours to a few
days. These can be on-site or off-site, as you wish.
I also do outsource editing and design. If your organization
is happy with the content of its publications but wants
help with the editing and/or design, I do this to the high
standards of a quality newspaper in fast turnaround times.
Please do not hesitate to contact me.
Tony Gearing, Managing Director, Fleet Street Flair
