"I didn't want to take the lunch break." — Training session attendee

Your marketing team has heard of ChatGPT, Jasper and other AI copywriting assistants.

They’ve opened ChatGPT, blown into the microphone and typed, “Testing, testing”. The results were impressive, although a little flat and not quite human. So how do you proceed BEYOND using AI copywriting as a gimmick and instead use an AI copywriter to make you a more CONFIDENT and EFFECTIVE writer?:

Frances Letters

Award-winning author

"Steven is a born teacher and a great fund of information and inspiration. I started the course with trepidation and self-doubt and finished the day punching the air and grinning ear-to-ear. And even more telling, days later my confidence hasn't waned."

Anonymous attendee feedback

"Steven has a wealth of knowledge and experience that he delivers in a generous, practical and engaging manner — with a wonderfully wicked sense of humour."

John Porter


"I've been involved in educating adults and teenagers for some thirty years, and I found Steven to be a natural teacher. His presentations are informal, well constructed, structured to suit all levels, and the information presented is precise and relevant. His responses to questions are approachable, honest and fair when comparisons needed to be made."

Steven Lewis, copywriter and AI copywriting expert

Steven Lewis has three decades of professional experience as a journalist, copywriter and early adopter of communication technology.


AI copywriting masterclass from a professional copywriter

Your AI copywriting speaker and trainer, Steven Lewis, has been using an AI copywriter in his own agency, Taleist, since early 2021.

In 1994, Steven built some of the first websites in the world, including an ezine (what would later be called a blog, after someone thought up that word).

He was running an email newsletter before most people had email.

What followed was a 29 year pattern of discovering, learning then teaching.

From the ezine, Steven became one of the first journalists to go from digital to print instead of the other way around. As a journalist, he covered the internet widely, writing for publications as diverse as GQ and the Financial Times.

In 2004, Steven started producing podcasts for his own business, as well as clients like Tourism Tasmania and Virgin. (It would be another year before Apple included podcasts in iTunes and a full decade before Serial shoved podcasts into the mainstream.)

In 2011, Steven gained a worldwide reputation for training authors to use Amazon’s technology to publish to the Kindle. Research that he co-authored was featured in publications like The Guardian, The New Yorker and The Bookseller.

Today, Steven runs Taleist, a specialist copywriting agency in Sydney. Taleist first incorporated AI copywriting into its processes in February 2021.

As a speaker and trainer in AI copywriting, Steven draws on his track record of spotting groundshifts early and Taleist's real-world experience.

When Steven speaks at a conference, runs training or is interviewed for a newspaper or podcast, everything he talks about is something Taleist is doing for its clients in Australia and internationally — clients who need results they can use every day, not gimmicks or theories.

AI copywriting topics

Steven has a strict no-bullshit policy, so whenever he speaks you’re getting the reality:

  • What’s hype and what’s real
  • What’s going to work for you
  • What’s not going to work for you
  • How you can get the absolute best results

When it comes to a conference talk or training session on AI copywriting, that’s likely to cover:

  1. What AI copywriting is — and how it differs from the human kind
  2. How AI copywriters work and:
    1. Where that makes them amazing
    2. Where that leave them needing adult supervision
  3. Why everyone will have an AI copywriter in a few years
  4. How can you squeeze the most advantage from of your AI copywriter
  5. How can spend less time “learning” AI copywriting and more time getting the words you need
  6. How to write the prompts and workflows that will shape an AI copywriter to your needs
