Writing Reports and 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 one-day workshop will build on a solid base of writing skills to present information in formal, informal, and proposal styles.
