Learn the skills of producing clear, succinct and influential reports.

Elite Training tailor report writing courses to the type and style of report your business needs to produce. Bespoke design and interactive delivery will ensure your staff can present reports in a professional manner, producing a compelling arguement.


You may have an excellent idea or proposal, but unless you can effectively communicate it in a report, you could fail to capture the interest and enthusiasm of the reader. It is important to write reports at different levels according to the level of the reader.

Our business report writing course will enable you to:

  • feel confident when faced with writing a difficult report
  • improve your performance and profile by writing professionally
  • make the right impression to get the right results
  • use a checklist to plan, write and edit reports more quickly
  • write clear and concise reports to create a positive image
  • present data clearly
  • present complex arguments in a logical structure
  • write shorter reports with more impact
  • write concise executive summaries.

Are your business reports brief, easy to read with a logical layout and a proper sequence of ideas? If not, we can help.

Our report writing course is designed to assist managers and professional staff within an organisation to produce reports that are clear, concise and effective by adopting a systematic approach.

We will show you how to write effectively and persuasively by using the correct language and structure.

Our trainers are all experts in professional report writing skills and know that not everyone finds it easy to make a point succinctly. We will help you get your message across and make sure your documents get to the top of the pile. We will even show you how to enjoy it.

Through a combination of theory and exercises, participants will develop their report writing skills to enable appropriate structure and present material that is easy to read and understand.

Delegates are issued with a workbook covering all aspects of the course. It is full of ideas, tips and practical examples on how to write a report. It concentrates exclusively on the skills you need to make the writing process easier and the resulting document more effective.


Anyone who has to produce reports to help others make decisions.


Business writing advantages and disadvantages:

Writing the business report:

  • Planning and preparation
  • Structure and sequence
