Advanced Report Writing (Trainer: Richard Hillsden)


Who is it for?
This course is designed for experienced report writers who are required to write complex reports and are looking to produce more effective documents to ensure they are read, understood and acted upon by decision makers within or outside the organisation. It is designed to be highly interactive and give delegates a chance to review issues relating to reports they are currently producing and there will be the opportunity to have one-to-one sessions.

What is it about?

By the end of the course delegates will be able to communicate information clearly through this medium in order to influence decision making and if appropriate to sell ideas or innovations.  Delegates will be able to increase the impact of their existing style, knowledge of format use and styles ensuring all reports are read, understood and acted upon by the intended audience.
