What is your true value to your organisation as an assurance professional?

You show process owners how to improve the control environment and you have the ability to give Management the comfort of knowing that the risks have been calculated and are being brought in line with their risk appetite.

But you can ONLY do that if you can earn their trust and make them WANT to collaborate!

But MOST assurance communication
is stuck in the risk mindset!

Would you take advice from someone who doesn’t listen to you or seem to care about what you want?

Unfortunately, that’s how many process owners and stakeholders tell us they feel when communicating with Internal Audit, Risk and Compliance Teams during virtual conversations; when reading their reports; and when listening to their virtual presentations.

We will show you how to confidently go above and beyond to add value on assurance issues so you can always give your busy, stressed-out and distracted clients and stakeholders maximum value for the time they spend with you.

6 virtual learning engagements

 

At ELC Consultants, we have condensed our 15-year experience empowering the communication of thousands of Assurance professionals into 6 virtual learning engagements.

Each one is in-depth, practical and future-proofed; and can be delivered via Live Learning Webinars, eLearning Modules or a blend of both.

It will empower you to easily and instinctively:

  • Turn suspicion into trust;
  • Turn distraction into engagement;
  • Turn avoiders into advocates;
  • Turn critics into supporters;
  • Turn division into union;
  • Turn dispute into agreement;
  • Turn conflict into collaboration;
  • Turn reluctance into commitment;
  • Turn fear into empowerment!

I expected the EMPOWERED AUDIT REPORTS 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 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, EMPOWERED FINANCIAL REPORTS 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.

The reason why I chose this training is because I’m writing emails every day – thousands of them! I’ve been trying to handle this volume of writing in the best way possible using some templates which I’ve created, but I wanted to gain more power and control over my word choice.

The training was long enough, and the content was very rich. Also, the Self-Study Tasks and Toolkit were all real lifesavers. I would definitely recommend TOTAL WORD POWER to everybody. After the training, I said to myself, “I wish I’d had this beforehand. So I advise all HR professionals to offer this to the employees in their companies; especially as early as possible in their careers.

What’s more, the TOTAL WORD POWER trainer, Andy Kovacs, was brilliant. He knew how to put the right focus on the training topics and how to keep attention high throughout. He gave the right amount of information, and his performance was meticulous and very impressive. It was a great experience – interesting, engaging and interactive!

I think that the topic of report writing is absolutely crucial and, to be honest, I thought that it could not be taught. Writing skills are learnt through on-the-job experience and they are not an easy skill to acquire. EMPOWERED AUDIT REPORTS completely changed my opinion on this and now I’m spending all of my effort to use all of the writing techniques that I learnt.

How to make your sentences shorter; how to get rid of unclear sentences which can confuse the reader; eliminating jargon and terminology; and how to be more economic in the report – these were the most important report writing lessons which I learnt from the course.

But this training offered so much more than just report writing techniques. We learnt so much about the wider subject of effective communication.It’s essential to understand what your stakeholders want to see in your report and to fulfill these objectives. This is a big part of our mission and the course really helped me with this.

I loved that it was so interactive. You have theory and then you have direct participation, so we put what we had learnt straight into practice.

What I also really loved was the trainer’s exceptional presentation techniques. Just attending the training has taught me so much about how to present and how to build up my message logically and make it get through to my audience.

I immediately recommended this training to my line manager, Guido, and to our Country Head. I told them: “You must participate in this training because I’m now going to be using these great report writing techniques which you’re not even aware of.”

In my job, I generally communicate with people by writing emails – and it’s really important that the information which I give is short, clear and well-explained. However, when I choose words in English, my explanations often get long.

TOTAL WORD POWER helped me to solve this. I learnt how to choose the right words – professional and sophisticated words – so my emails have become more economic and the writing process has become faster and more efficient. So I’m doing my job so much faster than before.

The delivery of TOTAL WORD POWER was very clear and detailed. Also, it was very visually engaging, so this helped to keep my interest throughout the 2 Live Learning Webinars. It was very practical and it was very interesting.

I would definitely recommend TOTAL WORD POWER to anybody who needs to write lots of emails in English in their job.
