Executive-Ready Writing

Executive-Ready Writing

About this workshop (1 day)

Senior executives don’t have time to dig through long reports to find conclusions and recommendations. They want to know the key issues, outcomes, solutions, payback and costs–and they want to find that information fast.

This executive writing workshop helps you develop the writing skills you need to communicate effectively with senior executives and the C-Suite. It gives you the tools to write concise emails and reports that answer your executive readers’ most important questions.
