Writing effective reports is a vital skill in today’s workplace. Important decisions are informed by reports but the sheer amount of communication in modern professional life means that only the best reports successfully cut through.
Whatever the purpose or regularity of your report, it is important that it is succinct and achieves precisely what you intended to convey.
In this one day course, we look at the purpose of our reports before considering their structure, tone, format and presentation. We will spend a lot of time thinking about how we should plan a report before we type anything; something that few of us do.
This is a practical session. We invite learners to come with something real that they can work on; either a draft of something that they regularly write or are tasked with creating from scratch. We then apply the lessons from the first half of the day to achieve great effective reports. We also build time in to practice. This is a valuable one day that results in greater confidence and more effective communications.

Lessons from the discomfort of a bad back.
I’ve never been one to suffer badly with back pain. The really painful stuff has only happened to me a few times over my near 55 years. Memorably the first time I experienced debilitating back pain it was caused pulling my socks on, on my 30th birthday! Prior to that experience I had carried around woeful, youthful distain, belittling the grumblings of others over their sore backs.
