May 2, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm$190
Register now for the the half-day report writing workshop I’m leading in Chicago on May 2, 2019: How to Plan Your Report Before You Write It, So It Takes Less Time to Review and Edit
It’s discouraging to spend days drafting a report (proposal, field report, observation report or white paper) only to have your manager tell you it needs a ton of changes. In this workshop, you’ll learn a process for planning your reports that will make them easier to write and more likely to make it through your manager’s review.
In this interactive, hands-on workshop, you’ll learn:
- How to budget your time for each step in the writing process
- How to use a customizable Report Planner before you begin drafting your report
- Why you should get your manager’s sign-off on the Report Planner
- How to structure the sections of your report
- Tips for creating the first draft of your report
- How to make your report flow from one section to the next
- How to manage the writing process when there are multiple authors
