I spoke with Ed Renshaw from Euromoney yesterday – The cost of a Financial Report Writing course is UK £4500 + VAT per day (for up to 20 people)
As you can see from Ed’s e-mail below his suggestion would be that a 1-day course is not adequate to cover this type of training.
Ed would be happy to set up a call between yourself &/or your CFO and the expert trainer to go through the training objectives etc… and see if their offering suits your needs
(The cost for 1 person to attend a 3-day course is in the region of £3,000 – £4,000)

Thank you for your email. We have procured Trigraph Professional Services to run a Business report writing course. Feedback from our member company who has used them was excellent. I have attached their outline. It’s more of a generic writing course rather than Financial services specific but am sure it the trainer can tailor it to suit the member companies training needs.
If you require any futher information, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 01 605 1546.

Gráinne, we had discussed a Financial Report Writing course last week. As discussed we would be happy to tailor to the needs of this client. Below is a suggestion for the main topics covered on a 1 day course. We can make this course highly interactive, with elements of theory and practice exercises designed for each section. There will be plenty of hands on work, planning, compiling and analysying reports, in small groups and individually. There would be a particular focus on Financial reports and we can look at examples from both public and private sector financial organisations if this suits.
Examples of sample reports critiqued, would be annual reports,quarterly bulletins,technical papers,economic letters, stastistical data. Attendees are also encouraged to bring any examples of their own, if they wish to the course.
- Purpose and Brief
- Organisational Culture
- Types of reports
- Report Staging-The Process
- Connections and Flow

Each attendee will receive a comprehensive information pack on the day, with presentation handouts,reading list and other reference material.
