Executive summaries are used to convey larger amounts of business information to decision makers quickly and concisely. Although they are of critical importance, the information and data is often difficult to put together in an efficient and straight-forward way. As such, having this skill can be an asset to both yourself and your organization. This course will examine key topics and how they impact your executive summary, such as knowing your audience, presenting each piece of information or data in the best way, and the use of context, scale, reach, and time. Additionally, you will examine how using proper writing, editing, formatting, and persuasion techniques can help to get your message across. This course is part of the Business Presentation Certificate.
