Badly written reports are difficult to read, demand greater perseverance from the reader, and risk being ignored or at least not fully comprehended. A badly written report may be the result of poor grammar, overuse of jargon and abbreviations, poor structure, bad presentation, or a combination of these.

We deliver short courses at the customer’s premises, tailored to meet the demands of those undergoing in effective communication skills, and specifically, effective report writing. Programmes are structured for those with a technical or non-technical background, and those who do not have English as a first language.
