Report Writing Short Course

Why is report writing so important and how will it benefit me?

- Reports must be prepared in such a manner that they can be used to make decisions regarding  future actions.

- Report writing requires innovative thought and attention to detail.


- The report writer must not only gather and interpret all appropriate information, but also convert it into a logical and easy to understand form, that is at once accurate, visual and convincing.


Excellent report writing and presentation skills will make you stand out from the crowd and fast-track your career as a manager.
