A cross section of the Electricity and Water Regulatory Commission (EWRC) Management and staff on Tuesday 16th June, 2020 took part in a one day Business Writing Skills presentation offered by CFY Partners, a Ghanaian based consultancy firm.
At the opening of the presentation, the Head of Consumer Affairs and Public Relations Mrs. Ngozi Obi Sesay stated that the key objective of the presentation was to provide a tool kit for staff with strategies to strengthen reform initiatives and ultimately develop the full set of skills needed to write successful reports.
Presentation which was done by the firm’s Partner & Head of Business Advisory Services Felix Tamattey, took the staff through various topics including the various stages to be considered in the writing of an accurate report. He stressed on the need for a report, which he described a factual record of an undertaken activity, to be “persuasive” and fully argued with evidence to support recommendations.
Mr. Tamattey went further to note the writers should be mindful of the four ‘Ws’ in report writing (Who, What, Why and When) in order that the audience for which the report is written is clear and the purpose or relevance of the report is taken into consideration.
In giving his vote of thanks, Electricity Engineer Cyril Boima expressed appreciation for what he described as a fantastic presentation. He noted that the presentation was very much timely for all staff as the Commission is in the process of compiling a half year report of its activities and staff of various departments would be very much involved in putting this together.
