Let’s talk about your course
Your board steers your organisation – and they make crucial decisions based on information and recommendations you and your team supply in a board report.
But poorly written reports full of unnecessary detail risk going unread and wasting your team’s time and effort. This course will give anyone writing or contributing to board reports the techniques they need to make sure this doesn’t happen. We’ll tailor the training materials using real examples from your organisation, which means you can be confident the training will be targeted and relevant.
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.
By the end of the training, attendees will be able to:
