Course description

Effective business report writing is an essential part of working life for many people, but some struggle with the process or find it frustrating. Using a systematic and structured approach can dramatically enhance the efficiency and quality of your report writing. 

We look at the purpose of business reports, and show you a number of key techniques for successful report writing – from planning and preparation, to structure and style. We also help you create a personal action plan that you can take back to the workplace.
