Does the writer’s knot in your stomach tighten when you’re asked to write a proposal or report? Do you wonder and worry about how to approach the task and second-guess yourself about structure and format? Does the project seem to take much longer than it should?
This highly interactive workshop will ease these concerns. You will learn the organizational skills needed to get into the project quickly and the presentation and format strategies for a professional and readable document. You will learn how to apply specific writing techniques to ensure your documents are accurate, specific and easy to read.
Learning and applying these techniques will help reduce the time it takes to write your reports and proposals. These techniques will also minimize the need to rewrite and edit as well as help your audience make critical decisions and take necessary actions.
Our blended format includes three components:
Pre-workshop Activities (approx. 90 minutes to complete): pre-reading materials
Workshop Activities (two 3-hour virtual sessions): practise and feedback of key concepts using coaching, scenarios and discussions
Post-workshop Activities (approx. 90 minutes to complete): proof-of-learning assignment with feedback provided by the instructor
Registration closes on February 19
