More about this course

For most people, the hardest part of report writing is getting started. In this course, you’re going to learn how to shave hours, days or even weeks off the report writing process through intelligent planning. You’ll learn what questions to ask so you’re not reinventing the wheel when you sit down to write your report. 

But best of all, you’ll discover a miraculous technique that will completely revolutionise how you go about structuring your reports. I developed this technique while working with a client who had been tearing his hair out at that early shaping stage. With my help, in under five minutes he went from having no clue about how to order his report to imposing a clear, coherent, logical structure on his ideas.

I’ve since gone on to share this technique with other report writers and trust me they’re always blown away by its power and simplicity. I can’t wait to share this technique with you – and you’ll be glad I did!
