Why Should You Attend:
When writing an executive summary of research findings, there are many choices because volumes of information about most topics inundate you in a content-crazed world. And when suggesting a course of action, there are again many choices because management’s direction changes course rapidly in a volatile marketplace. For these reasons, businesspeople often ask, “What should go into an executive summary?” In business, many disparate staffers assume the task of summarizing in writing. Some are account executives writing executive summaries of their own proposals for their clients; others are junior executives briefing management on an issue by compiling useful data from numerous reports; still others are administrative assistants writing executive summaries of articles or books to save their managers reading time. Regardless of these roles, possessing the ability to summarize effectively can make a significant difference in your career.
In this webinar, participants will discover the keys to guiding managers, teammates, clients, and vendors through complex content clearly, succinctly, and powerfully. It will enable you to employ a practical process for creating and critiquing memorable, results-driven executive summaries. This interactive session will allow time to answer questions about executive summary issues you encounter regularly. This webinar is for any managerial, administrative, or technical professionals charged with writing summaries of lengthy reports, proposals, and white papers for their managers and steering committees at the highest level of their organizations.

Management demands that the executive summary live up to its name. So the expectation is clear: tell me as thoroughly as possible without wasting a word only the information important to me so that I can decide on whatever you expect of me. “Millions of dollars are at stake,” a client for a major pharmaceutical company recently said. “All the logic and due diligence I put into the proposal are useless unless I can move the CEO to act on the strength of the executive summary alone.”
Writing executive summaries requires the writer to fulfill two objectives: understand management’s objectives for reading the executive summary, and demonstrate content mastery of the original document by including and excluding information based on those reader’s objectives. Achieving these objectives means that executive summary writing is as much a reading assignment as it is a writing assignment; however, we read and write not for what interests us but for what interests the executive reading the summary.
