The Challenge

Say It All, Say It Well.  Say It Wisely, Say It Briefly.

A briefing note is a powerful tool of access to leaders — to influence their decisions, their actions and their understanding of issues. In this regard, writers (and their managers) face a complex challenge. They must deliver expert insight and strategic acumen with clarity, brevity and professionalism — all presented in an optimal organization, format, style and tone.
