It is essential to understand how to write reports and proposals that get read. We write reports in a range of formats and a variety of purposes. Whether you need to report on a product analysis, inventory, feasibility studies, or something else, report writing is a skill you will use again and again.
Having a method to prepare these documents will help you be as efficient as possible with the task. This course will build on a solid base of writing skills to present information in formal, informal, and proposal styles.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
The Stages of Report Writing
This session will introduce the four stages of report writing: investigating, planning, writing, and revising.
The First Stage – Investigating
The first step is to gather the information for your report. In this session will give participants some guidelines to ensure that what they gather is accurate.
The Second Stage – Planning
Next, participants will learn how to plan a report based on information gathered during the first stage.
The Third Stage – Writing
This session will give participants some ways to ensure that their writing is clear, concise, complete, and correct.
The Fourth Stage – Revising
In this session, participants will learn about the importance of revision, including spelling and grammar checks.
This session will provide a brief introduction to organising a report.
Charts and Graphs
Next, participants will learn the right way to add charts and graphs to their report.
During this session, participants will learn how writing a proposal is different from writing a report. Participants will also review the ten steps to successful proposal writing.
This session will look at finishing touches for a report, including steps in the persuasion process, how to design your message, and how to deal with tough questions.
To summarise all that they have learned, participants will peer edit each other’s work.
This final session will focus on documentation methods and styles.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
