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.

Delegates will learn about common mistakes, how to produce outlines and how to introduce greater clarity in their writing, improving everything from documents to emails.

What content will the course cover?

  • Understand the purpose of reports 

  • Target your reader and analyse their needs 

  • Gather your data and select the relevant information for your reader 

  • Plan your report: brainstorming, mind-mapping & using the ‘outline’ method 

  • Structure your writing to maintain your readers’ attention: the beginning, the middle and the end 

  • How to produce an executive summary 

  • Use visuals, indexes & bibliographies to enhance your report 

  • Select words and phrases that will persuade your reader 

  • Write in a format that is crisp, clear and readily understood by the recipient 

  • Eliminate poor punctuation & grammar.

What will I get out of the training?

You will develop a range of report writing skills, from clarifying your objectives to drawing up outlines and organising your information. You will also learn how to construct arguments, prepare summaries and write recommendations - helping you to produce reports that are clear, concise and convincing.

At Kent Trainers, we’re proud to adapt our courses to the needs of businesses across the region. Our Business Report Writing Skills course uses practical exercises and examples, and encourages delegates to ask questions and seek feedback. By the end, you’ll have an understanding of report writing that fulfils your specific needs.

Louise Pearce

What is my experience?

I’ve worked extensively across both the Private and Public sectors. My experience has given me valuable insight into different strategic and operational approaches, business models and attitudes to both training and coaching which I have used to be able to adapt to different environments and requirements of organisations. My lifelong interest in developing people, led to a qualification in executive coaching and mentoring and this, coupled with my own ‘hands-on’ experience in the business world has allowed me to work with a whole range of organisations to develop both their individuals, teams and businesses to improve and adapt to change and challenges.


What is my area of expertise?

As a trainer and coach, I work with both individuals and groups of people on areas to develop themselves and their businesses qualitatively.  Process and performance management, managing change and remote leadership are key areas of expertise.  All these are linked by the use of both practical and psychological models, for delegates to take back and use in their workplace to ensure that the investment in training really benefits them and their business going forward.


Why I love inspiring others?

I believe that anyone, with a little support, can be the very best version of themselves that they want to be.  The blend of training and coaching gives me the amazing opportunity to witness people developing and growing into that best version of themselves – and there is no greater ‘buzz’ than that.
