Reports are the lifeblood of decision making and monitoring in business. Ideally, they provide relevant, vetted information that allows a reader to easily understand both context and implications and make an informed decision. However, too often, important information is buried, and organization is muddled. And, writing a report can feel like a time-draining burden.

This one-day program teaches you the optimal planning and writing process to convey technical and complex information effectively. And, you will learn how to write reports more efficiently, saving you time and reducing frustration.

Upon completion of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand and avoid the common errors in technical writing
  • Employ guided technical writing skills
  • Acquire practice in writing technical reports
  • Write clear and convincing reports
  • Format their technical reports effectively

This workshop is suitable for all industries – from factories to research laboratories; particularly for individuals looking to improve their report writing skills to become more effective in communication, or in an industry that involves technical or financial analytical documents and reports.

Learners are guided through practical steps of the topic with a combination of sharing, handouts and practical exercises, group activities and discussions, games and Q&A sessions in this interactive workshop.
