This two-day workshop is intended to help participants do the writing their job demands. If participants are a manager at any level in business, government, or industry, they must write reports. Whether they want to or not, they write to explain things, to smooth relationships and to convince others of the value of some course of action. Writing must be clear, concise, complete, and correct. It must also convey their message in a courteous tone. The workshop will help participants to identify the range of this kind of writing, the forms it takes, and the persuasive techniques it requires.
Highlights of what participants will learn:
- Learn the value of good written reports as a communication tool;

- Prepare reports and proposals that inform, persuade, and provide information;
- Proofread their work so they can feel confident it is clear, concise, complete and correct;
