Let’s talk about your course
Writing high-quality reports that clearly express expertise or recommendations is a core business skill. This comprehensive report-writing training covers all the skills your team need to plan, structure and write effective reports that get results.
We tailor the course content and practical exercises to your unique challenges and goals. This includes using real-life examples of your documents so everything is relevant for your sector, industry and the kinds of reports your team write.
A key feature of this course is that all delegates receive our unique pre-course writing analysis. This covers 15 different areas of writing skills and helps us ensure the training meets the delegates’ precise writing needs, while ensuring delegates make rapid, targeted improvements.
We can run this course remotely online or in person at your workplace or choice of venue.
