Stan Berry's Experience

Privately Held; 1-10 employees; Professional Training & Coaching industry

1976Present (38 years)

Professional writing coach Stan Berry has devoted the past 34 years to improving the writing skills of over 55,000 business and governmental professionals. Stan's unique and energetic approach to teaching makes the class engaging and fun. Stan has also authored five books on business writing that he uses in his seminars.

Stan’s fascination with effective writing began at age 13 when his mother, a poet and writer, and father, an English teacher, began critiquing his school papers. Soon after, he fell in love with training while watching his father teach engineers at Honeywell, Medtronic, General Mills and 3M.

Stan has a Bachelor’s of Science in education from the University of Minnesota and a Master’s of Arts and Religion from Yale University. He’s been a member of ASTD (American Society for Training & Development) since 1975 when he served on the Board of Directors for the Twin Cities Chapter.

We offer Writing to Get Things Done (WGTD) as an on-site instructor-led seminar and as a self-directed online course.
