5 Steps To Communicating Confidently About Your Project

Have you ever had stakeholders who don’t get it or who don’t listen? One of the main ways of getting your message across more clearly is through project status reports.

Project status reports are a key communication tool for project managers.
This course will help you:

  • Save time on reporting
  • Create reusable templates (or simply use the ones included in the course)
  • Set up processes with your team for collecting updates to go in the report
  • Get your message across more clearly
  • Present yourself and your project professionally.
Elizabeth Harrin from steps you through how to produce clear, concise and effective reports, and more importantly, how to get your stakeholders to read and act on them.
“I have just finished your course and I enjoyed it. I am going to use your tips and I am sure they will improve my project status reports.”
Tim T., Germany

This self-led course is for you if:

  • You want to shout about the great things your team is doing on this project.
  • You want to save yourself time every week and streamline your reporting process so it's hassle-free.
  • You want a pile of professional report templates to choose from.
  • You want your stakeholders to really understand what's happening on the project they supposedly care about.

This self-led course is NOT for you if:

  • You don't need to communicate in writing about your project.
  • You have a Project Management Office that rigorously dictates how you must report.

Hi, I'm Elizabeth!

I've been in your shoes. I've spent time trying to design perfect report templates that meet the whims of my sponsor and Project Management Office. I've tried to get my team to give me status updates to include in my reports... and often that was the most time-consuming task of my week.

I've put this course together to save you from the same headaches. Learn techniques that work to save you time. Use my templates for your reports. Let me show you how to communicate clearly and concisely, in a repeatable way that will win you back hours to do actual management of projects!

I have 15 years of experience managing projects at all levels, including working overseas. I've written three books. I'm the award-winning blogger behind I mention this stuff not to blow my own trumpet but so that you know that I've got a fair idea what I'm talking about. I look forward to meeting you in the course!
