Conference on report writing

"Communicating through report writing"
Icon Paintings Group Conference
The Royal Society of Artists
8 John Adams Street
London WC2N 6E2
Friday 21 October 2005

The Institute of Conservation (ICON) Paintings Group is organizing a
day conference dedicated to examining report writing practice.
Communication through report writing will ask just what our clients
think about the reports that they receive, and what it is they
actually want.

The day will be divided into two: one half to be devoted to
different methods of report writing, the other half to asking those
who use our services what information they would like to receive.

Can we make our reports any clearer? What are the legal implications
of what we write? Join us for a lively day of comment and exchange
of ideas.
