    We will cover: 

    • Knowing what you want to say
      Understanding your audience and being clear about your purpose to help you identify your key messages.
    • Choosing the best tone and structure
      Using your messages to create a logical structure and find the right style for your report.
    • Presenting information effectively
      Being relentlessly clear is the best way to gain understanding. We will clarify what plain English is and how to use it, as well as how to summarise and use graphs, tables and charts well.

    Bring a recent report (or one from your to-do list) to reflect on throughout the day. You’ll be able to apply what you learn directly to this example. This will help you to feel confident about putting your new skills to use.

    Who should attend? 

    Everyone who wants to improve their report writing skills, including leaders, managers and team leaders.
