Reports and Proposals They Want to Read 4 x 3 Hour Sessions

What's it all about?

Reports and proposals are the types of documents that most often strike fear into the heart of the first-time writer in the workplace.  Unfortunately, that fear often results in a document that "plays it safe", using existing templates whose structure don't always suit the subject matter and the kind of "officialese" language that at best bores the person reading it and at worst confuses them.  

 

This course presents another approach to report and proposal writing that will have you producing documents that actually get read and that will prompt your audience to make decisions and take actions.
