Writing in Councils testimonials


City of Casey – Participant

"All of it, one of the best training sessions I have attended. Loved that it was a no laptop session which meant no one was distracted doing emails/chats. Supplying our own examples and having a facilitator with council knowledge really helped make it fantastic. Also loved that the tips were short and sharp and easy to do. "


Glen Eira City Council – Jess

"Should be compulsory training for anyone expected to draft and submit council reports. "


Wyndham City Council – Megan

"This was extremely helpful training. To the point, useful, kind in approach. Format was great for online, I liked that it stayed in the larger group setting but had exercises mixed throughout. Was engaged the whole time, time flew past. I would recommend that all staff should be required to do this training when they start as a Wyndham employee."


Central Highlands Regional Council – Scott Mason – Chief Executive Officer

"The Report Writing Training delivered by ICML was extremely engaging, professional and highly beneficial for council officers to develop and advance their report writing skills. The training provided staff with not only useful writing techniques and resources, but with a greater confidence and understanding of writing practices. I would highly recommend ICML to anyone wishing to progress their writing skills!"
