Why book this course?
Everyone thinks they’re a writer until it’s time to put pen to page. This is doubly true for business reports, which require both deep thought and a keen eye. You not only have to contend with traditional writing skills - i.e. grammar and punctuation - but also the unique structure and vocabulary that colleagues and clients will expect.
Our Business Report Writing Skills course aims to bolster your writing skills, and strengthen the content of your reports. You’ll cover the use of plain and fluent English, using the correct grammar, and demonstrating an effective layout, ensuring that your reports are professional, parsable and contemporary.
Who is the course for?
This course is ideal for anybody who is responsible for producing reports for colleagues and clients, or who wishes to brush up on their business writing skills.
