The world is governed more by appearance than reality.
– Niccolo Machiavelli
Why do this?
We know that we shouldn’t do this, but unfortunately we do: we judge people by appearance.
It’s quick, easily available and often accurate. When walking down a dark street at night, we can only look at the appearance of the person walking towards us before deciding to run or not.
For non-native-English speakers, there is a troubling significance to our society’s appearance bias when it comes to their professional communication. It’s this: when they make a mistake when writing an email in English, it gets observed and they get judged for it.
As a result, writing emails, which is the cheapest and most convenient of today’s global communication tools, becomes a form of torture. The writing process takes forever due to checks and double-checks, key information gets simplified at the expense of language accuracy and some emails never end up getting written.
Utilize our unique executive emailing reference toolkit to write and professional email with perfect organisation of content, language, clarity, economy and professionalism

I expected the Audit Report Writing Workshop to be a very dry and theoretical course with instructions on how we write reports in Vodafone.
But to tell you the truth, I came home and I said to my wife: “Susan, today I’ve had the most amazing training I’ve ever had!” – and I’ve had some great training!
The report writing training was fantastic – the difference being that the trainer really knew how to bring the message across. The training was very interactive. It not only taught me how to write in the most efficient and professional way but also how to make a powerful connection with the reader.
All in all, we not only learnt how to write reports, but we also learnt how to communicate effectively which I think is the key. That was the real added value of this course.

As a training experience, Financial Report Writing Workshop took our attention from the very start – not just me, but the whole group.
People were saying: “Wow! It’s 9 o’clock on the day of the first session and we have already defined exactly what the key problem is with our report writing.”
I would definitely recommend this financial report writing training. It’s not just about the books and the materials, but it’s important to learn things that you will remember at work and know how to use.
I immediately applied what I learnt from the training into my real business life. The expertise of the trainer and how the training was delivered was the key to success here. What is delivered is important, but how it was delivered was what I would also like to recommend. In this sense, it was better than 99% of the training I have had till now.
