Report Writing Skills Training
« on: June 10, 2018, 10:36:03 AM »
Good ideas do not always get the attention that they deserve. Frequently, badly organised, wordy reports tend to hide important information, and the important messages are lost.
How employees benefit from attending writing training courses

Because reports play an essential role in many business operations, they need to be read, understood, and often, acted upon. Unfortunately, most of us have too much to read and too little time to plough through all of the paperwork that lands on our desks.

If writers include too much information or too many words, they produce reports that are lengthy, wordy and difficult to read; if they use overly-formal language and an inconsistent or inapproriate layout, their reports will be unappealing and unclear.

We show participants a systematic approach to report writing so that they are able to write clear, logically structured reports in less time.

Which means that the employer and the reader benefit too.
The specific benefits of report writing training

Participants will see how to:

use a number of easy-to-learn report-writing techniques
ensure their reports are well structured, that they flow logically and look professional
make their reports easier to read, and therefore to understand
make essential parts of the report stand out
make it easy for different readers to navigate around the report
produce documents that enhance the image of both the writer and the organisation
The report writing training course is designed for
Anyone who produces reports and needs them to be understood and acted upon.

The duration and options for our report writing training courses
We run these courses as one or two-day programmes.
On the two-day report writing course, participants have the opportunity to practise new skills using our course materials and their own documents.

Please contact us if you would like to organise a wrtiting training programme of a different duration.
