An intensely practical one-day workshop to give you new ideas and inspiration for re-energising your internal communication.
Great internal communication doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can be highly resource-intensive in terms of time and effort. This course explores ways to select the most appropriate communication methods and to squeeze the maximum value from each.
In your organisation you probably have a staff newsletter, an intranet, possibly some face-to-face channels such as team briefings or staff presentations, and various management workshops or away-days. But how happy are you with each of these channels and are they all working hard enough?
Ask yourself questions like ‘Are you pushing out information to your people – or really making them sit up and take notice?’, ‘Are your staff being talked at – or do they feel involved, engaged and enthusiastic?’ and ‘Do you feel you’re fighting an uphill struggle with insufficient budget and too small a team - or are you getting top value from your limited resources?’
In this fast-moving, highly interactive one-day workshop, we will give you a practical toolkit of tips and advice that you can implement straightaway.
The tools will help you:
Plan ‘joined-up’ communications by selecting the most appropriate channels for the job and using different channels to reinforce, not duplicate, your key messages
Get the most out of traditional channels such as staff newsletters
Make your intranet both a valuable business tool and a popular place that your people want to access
Create team briefs that are fun to deliver and to receive
Manage meaningful feedback in a variety of ways
Optimise every opportunity for your senior managers to communicate with staff
Measure the success of channels.
Above all, this is an ideal opportunity to get some new ideas and inspriation with which to re-energise your internal communications and make the most of your time and money.
Who should attend
This intensely practical workshop is aimed at anyone who is new to internal communications or who wishes to introduce different practical and creative approaches to their work. It is also valuable for people in other functions, such as HR or public relations, who have responsibility for employee communications.
There is a maximum of 12 places on each one-day workshop.

"I'll be implementing the planner as soon as I get back to my desk and feel like there are other tools and tips that can help me have important conversations with key stakeholders within the business."
