Channel Management for Internal Communication: Virtual Learning

Start Time: 2:30 pm
Location:  Online

One of the keys to any successful internal communications campaign lies in choosing the right mix of channels, one that not only fits the objective and the target audiences, but also enables the message to land with maximum impact.

New technologies allow us to take advantage of innovative ways to communicate and engage with internal stakeholders (i.e. Yammer, social media, employee apps); while at the same time, tried-and-tested channels (i.e. face-to-face, newsletters, posters) still play an important role in creating employee engagement, productivity, and organisational well-being.

The challenge is to find channels that elevate your communication, cut through the clutter, create understanding, and simply stand out for all the right reasons.

Communicating Change: Virtual Learning

Start Time: 9:30 am

Change is one of the few guarantees in life and therefore also in business. Never has this been more accurate than at the present time.

While organisations face change to adjust to internal or external forces, people often resist the sense of uncertainty and fear loss of control. Communicating change effectively, the reason behind it, the goals and the benefits, is critical to the success of any change initiative.

Skills2Film: Creating Video Comms: Virtual Learning

Start Time: 2:00 pm
Location:  Online

Our ability to communicate to our teams internally – as well as our clients externally – has never been so important! Video content is now essential in corporate communications but creating GREAT content is not easy. The visual sense is one of the most powerful senses we possess - we use it from when we’re born till we die. The visual image engages and stimulates emotions in the human brain, it’s why we look at a Rembrandt or take a selfie! But like the great artists of the past we need skill and technique to engage our viewers, so they remember our visual images days and weeks later.
