What's On

If you want to produce reports that capture the facts, analyse them concisely, and make actionable recommendations, then read on.

This session will focus on the importance of structure, selection, and scrutiny in producing targeted reports that primarily seek to avoid redundant content and highlight the key content.

This workshop will concentrate on:
• various structures/headings that can be used to organise reports including some industry templates such as internal audits and listing decisions.
• the value formatting, headings, and infographics play in report document design.
• the most effective ways to present purpose, method, and selective, relevant findings including presenting and analysing data.
• how to draw logical, coherent conclusions, and make actionable recommendations.

Learning Outcomes:
This workshop targets the importance of:
• structuring reports in a clear, sequenced, and reader-focused manner with a purpose
• producing documents that are focused instead of using them as an 'information dump'
• analysing findings logically, drawing selective conclusions, and making realistic recommendations

Target Audience:
• those wishing to write effective reports
• people who would like a refresher in report writing, and
• managers who would like some pointers in offering advice to their team members.
