If you want to become an effective and efficient writer--writing reports that answer questions, solve problems, sell products or services, or generate action--then this webinar is for you. At the heart of the workshop is an introduction to, and understanding of, the five-stage writing process: Planning, Research, Outline, Writing, and Revision.

The workshop then shows you how to structure reports and how to apply the writing process to report writing. Based on the instructor's book, Harness the Business Writing Process, the writing process information can be applied to any type of writing, although this webinar looks specifically at applying it to report writing.

The webinar also includes an overview of how to make the writing of sentences and paragraphs as clear, as strong and as error-free as possible.
