Unlike copywriting and art direction courses a la "tick the PD box", this training and development program is platinum standard, designed and delivered by an advertising copywriter/art director who happens to also be qualified teacher. The Copy&Art in Action courses listed in this site are for professional communicators serious about their professional (and by default, personal) development:
* You participate in one-on-one and small group sessions, enabling greater results and accomplishments of your objectives.
* You have exclusive access to an authority, enjoying 101% attention through an in-depth, individualised learning experience.
* You join a supportive, interactive and engaging environment that ensures greater scope and opportunities for real development.
* You are taught to think outside the box, see the invisible, then make it visible to your audience with dynamic sentence building.
* You are also taught how to create new boxes to think within, where you put old thoughts into and make them fresh again.
By developing these essential communication skills within what participants describe as a "hothouse" environment, you too will acquire the control, confidence and acumen necessary for any communication piece to rise well above the clutter of information overload. By subscribing, you will be in the loop for the latest course timetable and monthly articles on quality content practices.
BREAKING NEWS: 2014 will see a video series of interviews with copywriters and art directors on what makes a great communicator. Subscribe and stay tuned. Stay very tuned.
Nicolas was fantastic at engaging the audience and inviting us all to have a passion for copywriting as he certainly does. He demonstrated the key skills to us in a clear, concise and friendly manner. It was a very worthwhile and inspiring course.

This Masterclass really does change your way of looking at what and how you write. I really enjoyed the engaging, inclusive approach and grasping how the techniques can apply to different subject matter.

Doing Copywriting in Action granted me the skills and confidence to begin writing as I'd always wanted to. I'm now a freelance copywriter in Melbourne and love what I do. Nicolas is a patient, persistent teacher who allows you to explore your own style while equipping you with useful and helpful copywriting know-how.

Nicolas Di Tempora provides excellent and professional service; He has qualities such as patience and persistence but has a great sense of humour. He is the most inspiring teacher I have ever met.
Jenny Zhe Chang | Artist
I found Nicolas' multifaceted teaching approach to be inspiring and engaging. This class was an enriching experience and I hope to take another one of Nicolas' classes in future.
Coreen Haddad | Film Producer
The copywriting training that Nicolas provided was very hands-on and specific to our company’s needs. Nicolas challenged all our pre-conceived ideas on writing display adverts, brochures and creative briefs, and gave us the skills to be able to write more persuasive copy. I would not hesitate in recommending his in-house program to other companies, no matter what the level of skill their staff may already have in copywriting.
Jan Lipnicki | Production and Editorial Manager
I have participated in two short-courses on developing writing skills delivered by Nicolas. And I have dreaded missing even one single lesson for fear of losing out on the writing-skill-development pearls that he gives at each and every session of his.

With a credibility that comes from working for internationally renown advertising agencies, Nic offers a lot in the development of his students. Most importantly, that Copywriting is not a mythical talent or a"gift of the gab". It is a learned process and discipline. One that he is uniquely suited to teach and share.
Shane Ekpanyaskun | Marketing Manager | Maxpak Australia
Doing the structural editing and copy writing course really helped to improve the quality of my work. It gave the confidence to approach projects I had been resisting. It was fun, rewarding and inspiring.
Sonja Ebbels | Freelance Journalist
Thanks for a great course, you’re a fantastic teacher and I loved the practical way we worked. Thanks again for all your help.
Fiona White | Social Media Director | Rodeo Agency
The copywriting course was fantastic for me. Coming from an academic approach to advertising and marketing, the practical nature of the classes, and the textbook, allowed me to implement much of what I'd learned, and then to see how that translated into the 'real world'. Being the only person in the class of around 12 who was not already working for a big agency or marketing department, the class also served as a great opportunity to rub shoulders with people in the know. Finally, Nicolas is quite the character, approachable and humble and yet accomplished and talented, he was an outstanding teacher and I really couldn't ask for more. Highly, highly recommended.
