FUTURE COMMS HELP: Four workshops to help your future comms 

Summer is in the air and I’m nailing down the last workshop dates before people head off on holiday. 

Normally, I’ll blog about research, findings or other things and I can’t remember the last time I just brought together in one place a list of what I do.

I’m very mindful this year that the pace of change in communications and PR has quickened. Most people at the coalface don’t have chance to put in the time to research the important stuff.

I know I’m lucky in having the time to be people’s spare brain to research the data, look at trends and play back the stuff that’s going to work and gently point out the things that no longer is. 

The decline of Twitter really shows that the old certainties have gone and fresh eyes are needed. When I revamped my logo a while back it was suggested I came up with a strapline. I did. Then promptly put it to one side. That strapline is ‘Future comms made easy’ which is what my sincere hope is in offering training. Change is tricky. The future is worrying. Here’s a way to make it easier.

So, workshops.


This is the one that answered the plea for help: ‘If only there was one workshop that covered everything I need to know.’  It covers, comms planning, evaluation, the changing media landscape, how to create content that works, algorithms, WhatsApp for Business, TikTok, Nextdoor, ChatGPT, Facebook groups and dealing with snark.  

What: Five online sessions, four of 60 minutes and one of 90 minutes.
