This QNET workshop has been designed specifically for business managers and professionals who have to plan and write comprehensive reports, proposals, analyses, feasibility studies, and similar documents. You
 will be introduced to a proven organizing tool that will consistently enable you to present information in a clear, logical manner that will capture and hold readers' attention.

You will also learn how to:

  • Use a unique planning template created for each kind of document.
  • Draw readers' attention to key information.
  • Distinguish between essential and unessential information.
  • Adapt to recent changes in business writing practices.
  • Pose questions that evoke accurate responses.
  • Plan and write documents specifically allied to your requirements, such as employee performance evaluations and observations, news releases, research papers and summaries of informal meetings.
  • Proofread and edit your own and other writers' work.  
The instruction will be combined with practical exercises to assure complete understanding of the techniques.

This workshop takes the ideas presented in QNET's Write It Right 1: High Performance Business Writing workshop to the next level. However, prior attendance at Write It Right 1 is not a pre-requisite for participation in Write It Right 2.
