Course description

Writing Exceptional Board Reports

Your board steers your organisation – and they make crucial decisions based on information and recommendations you and your team supply in a board report.

But poorly written reports full of unnecessary detail risk going unread and wasting your team’s time and effort. This course will give anyone writing or contributing to board reports the techniques they need to make sure this doesn’t happen. We’ll tailor the training materials using real examples from your organisation, which means you can be confident the training will be targeted and relevant.

A key feature of this course is that all delegates receive our unique pre-course writing analysis. This covers 15 different areas of writing skills and helps us ensure the training meets the delegates’ precise writing needs.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Who is it for?

Anyone who has to write or contribute to reports for the board, in any department.

What level is it for?

Any level. We tailor the content to meet participants’ needs, communications and backgrounds.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the training, attendees will be able to:

  • profile your board of directors and identify what information is crucial to the report – and what to leave out
  • build a logical structure to communicate ideas clearly and succinctly
  • write executive summaries that get their message or case across – even if board members read no further
  • present technical information, data and assessments of risk so they’re meaningful for all readers
  • create consistent documents, even with multiple contributors use correct grammar and punctuation to avoid any embarrassing mistakes
  • write in your organisation’s tone of voice.

One of the best courses I have done. Fast paced but at a good tempo.
Trudy T
The length of the course and the content were absolutely right! I take my laptop wherever I go and had planned to keep up with my emails while there...but I didn’t. I texted a colleague before the course and said I was on a “bored” writing course! expecting it to not be relevant or condescending – none of those, best course I’ve attended in ages!

The pace of the course felt right. Nice to split over 3 days so as to still give time to do the day job. Useful handouts to refer back to.
