You know, you really should know how to write a report.” (Read that in a whiny, snarky voice for full effect.) Ahhhhmm, no, you shouldn’t. Because every report is different. There is no one right way. But I can give you the tools and the confidence to figure out how to write the right report, every time.
About the Report Writing Course
Just pop your email address in here and I’ll send you a beautiful pack with everything you need to know.
What we’ll cover
Plain language approaches — how to make your writing clear, simple, and understandable by a wide audience
Reader-centric tools — understanding your readers’ needs, and structuring a document accordingly
Editing and reviewing techniques—so you can make sure documents (written by you and others) are sharp, polished, and impressive every time!
The reporting repertoire – examining a range of reports
Planning tools—how to separate thinking from writing so you use your time most efficiently
The dreaded “level of detail” dilemma – how to collect, classify, filter, and structure information
Use of appendices – the reader and writer’s best friend
The most powerful executive summary – nail your outcome, every time
Things you’ll want to know.
This is really the full training package.
I pride myself on things running smoothly and making your life easier. Once you book with me, we take care of the rest of the process. All you need to do is tell me where and when to show up (and organise some food for your people if you want to). I’ll do the rest.
Who’s the course for?
This course is for those wanting to specialise in report writing and/or anyone writing reports (of any kind).
Where is the course held?
I come to you. So we can do this at your office or an external venue. Just let me know where and when to show up and I’m there! I’ll pass my travel costs on to your organisation (one night of accommodation for each training day outside of Hamilton, NZ).
How long is a full training day?
Usually we go from 9am to 4pm, but I’m happy to work around what works for your people. My only real need is that I can access the venue an hour before we start, so everything’s super-organised and impressive before your people arrive.
How many can attend?
Up to 12 people is ideal. I don’t mind if you only have 5 or 6. But once we get over 12 people, the course slows down, and time is too precious for your people to be twiddling their thumbs!
How many days is this course?
This course runs for 2 full days. That’s a significant chunk of time for your people to be out of action. You can run the days back to back, or separated by a week or two to make it work best for your business needs.
How much does it cost?
All my trainings are $8,000+gst per day for groups of up to 12 people. That’s how confident I am that you’ll get stunning results. That’s how much I know that more efficient writing is worth GOLD.

Shelly’s style of teaching is like finding that book you’ve been waiting ages to read. You finally get it, read it, front to back and back again then BAM, can't wait for the sequel. Nga mini uni Shelly😉Ferinica Foreman6/19/2021
