In this workshop we explore the 3 things all great report writers do and identify what makes an effective report.
Participants are introduced to the 1-2-3 of good report writing (namely accuracy, brevity and clarity) and the effective use of grammar – sentences, paragraphs and punctuation.
Participants learn how to structure a report – where to start, organising the material, using persuasive and powerful words, and eliminating “filler words and phrases”.
The workshop concludes with participants practising writing a brief report.
