4)      Communicating information with impact

 

You know you have done great work on your TRAC analysis; its technical, it’s tricky there are a lot of numbers. But will ‘they’ read it? will ‘they’ understand what it means?  If you want to improve your chances of writing a great report (ie telling a great story about your work), you need to understand who will read it, and therefore how you write it for them. Phil has been through a few TRAC reports in his day as FD at University of Edinburgh and will share some practical tips on how to transform your thinking and writing.
