When you write to decision makers, you need to convey only essential information. These people don’t have time to read unnecessary detail or scour texts for buried key messages.
This one-day workshop will teach you how to write strategic briefing notes--the primary vehicle that the Government of Canada uses to communicate with senior decision makers. By dividing the writing process into manageable steps, this workshop will equip you to compose briefing notes that meet the needs of a time-pressed, senior audience. In essence, you’ll learn how to provide the right information in the right way.
The workshop contains four sections. First, we discuss the parts of briefing notes and the roles these parts play. Here we also consider templates and review the characteristics of effective briefing notes. Second, using a real-life case study, we address the importance of planning, which involves clarifying your purpose, analyzing your reader, and acknowledging your deadlines. Third, we examine how to select and organize content to meet your objectives and your reader’s needs. And finally, we discuss how to compose effective summaries.
Note that this workshop does not cover grammar or writing style. Instead, the workshop concentrates on the strategic aspects of writing.
