Frank has been an FIA member for more than 20 years. Over the years, the copywriting business he founded, Action Words, has been engaged by dozens of fundraisers, particularly for writing fundraising letters. Since 2006, Frank has also been offering a one-day writing workshop, ‘Writing skills to make your team more professional’.
This workshop has had amazing success both within our sector. The testimonials that Frank receives tell the story:
“The Action Words business writing workshop was totally practical and very worthwhile. It made a real difference for us in both our business writing and our communications with our supporters.” Trish Hardy, Royal Melbourne Hospital.
“We had a large group of our people attend the session from Action Words and we were thrilled with the results. Everyone gained something practical and we felt the time investment was well worthwhile.” Suzana Ristevski, Strategic Marketing Director, GE Capital.
