Writing Reports That Get Read

This two day course will give delegates the skills and tools they need to write effective reports that deliver a clear and succinct message. Over two days, delegates will gradually build up the skills and tools they need to write effectively. Each module starts with theory and then reinforces its ideas with practical business writing exercises. The course starts with short exercises and gradually builds up to more complicated ones, as the delegates become more skilled at writing. Throughout the course, the delegates’  business writing abilities will be individually assessed.

The speed with which we can move from one part of the course to the next will largely depend upon the skill level of the group being trained. The course is designed to work for between six and eight delegates. We can also provide a different version of this course for non-native English speakers.
