Business writing is a vital skill for GRC professionals.
To get results, you need to write documents that will support and engage your organisation’s employees to do what is right. And to do that, you need to communicate complex information in a simple way.
In this workshop, Vivienne will present a structured approach to writing business documents. She’ll show you how to plan, organise and write documents, to ensure that your readers can find and understand the information they need, and you get the results you want.

The workshop will cover:

  • Identifying your purpose and desired result
  • Analysing your readers
  • Using structured writing principles
  • Using templates and creating your own outlines
  • Best practice writing advice
  • Best practice presentation advice
  • Reviewing your document

Vivienne has over 25 years’ experience as a trainer and a writer. She specialises in both training people to use a structured writing approach for their business communications, and using the approach herself to develop documents for clients.  

Structured writing is a research-based approach to writing that is highly effective for compliance purposes. The approach provides writers with a consistent framework for developing clear effective documents in an efficient way. And it provides readers with information that’s easy to find, easy to understand and easy to act on.

Vivienne has delivered workshops for a wide variety of private and public sector clients in Australia, as well as New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. She presented a workshop at the 2016 GRC conference: “Using Structured Writing to get the outcomes you want.”

She has developed documents for a variety of clients, particularly in the financial services and pharmaceutical sectors.

When she’s not teaching or writing, Vivienne also works in Guest Experience at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
