Pro Series: Effective Business Writing - Reports & Proposals

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. 

Workshop objectives include:

  •  Prepare reports and proposals that inform, persuade, and provide information.
  •  Review your work so that it is clear, concise, complete, and correct.
  •  Apply these skills in real work applications.
