Writing and Presenting Non Profit Board Papers

About this workshop

Have you ever had your ideas rejected by the Board or Committee, been told to rewrite your submission, have the leaders advise the Board did not understand your ideas or the numbers behind it do not make sense? Then this workshop will be great for you.

Sometimes great projects may not be given the opportunity to fly as a result of Management presenting information poorly or in a way that makes it difficult for the Board to make well-considered decisions. This workshop works through the essentials of writing a paper for the decision-makers and how to best engage them and maximise their input. It is designed to get ‘cut-through’ for your message the first time the paper is presented.
