Future Hospitality Managers Executive Summaries Executive summaries complete a report, whether an analytical report, memo, or major project. Executive summaries are the parts of the report that are read first.
Readers may not even get to the detail in your report. They read the executive summaries to see if the rest of the report is worth reading.
