We all know the importance of documents that ‘get to the point’.

You will benefit by

  • recognising the thinking processes that precede writing
  • discovering key distinctions about your readers and understanding how those distinctions impact your structural choices
  • gaining useful techniques for writing documents for decision makers
  • cutting down the time you take to produce a first draft
  • writing clearly and objectively no matter how complicated or technical your content
  • learning the craft of clever story telling.
