Writing Briefs

Do you need to design, develop and deliver an effective briefing?


IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?

Would you deliver better results if you could recognise and present crucial information that withstood internal and external scrutiny?

Would your work benefit if you could understand the needs of decision-makers and how to manage those relationships by preparing quality and timely briefings?

Over two half-day sessions, you will be given the knowledge to use NSW government templates and examples to write effective and compelling briefs.

This hands-on workshop includes lots of opportunities to examine your own documents so you can define the purpose and order key ideas.

You’ll also learn techniques for recognising and correcting problems with your language and structure.

Effective communications skills were identified by the NSW public sector leaders as one of the Skills for Success. This course builds on the foundations developed in Skills for Success: Communicating with confidence.
