Programme Description

Effective writing is paramount in today’s workplace. A good report enables better decision-making, problem-solving, and allows for easy communication of complex information to a selected audience. With organisations likely to continue making difficult and unprecedented decisions that could have long-term implications, it is essential that meeting minutes support efficient decision-making processes. Being able to keep up, take concise notes, and cascade the relevant action points to the right people are all critical skills that mid-level officers must master.
