We can help you develop and deliver that all important communications strategy.  We can review the way in which you use digital and ensure you’re getting the most from it.  If there’s a new campaign you need to launch we can help make it fly.  If your team would benefit from tailored in-house training, we’re skilled in creating 1-2-1 and group learning sessions which target specific development needs.  And if you need more engagement from your social media efforts we’re pretty excellent at that too.

From running communications conferences in Jordan for the Foreign Office, facilitating team away days for 60 comms professionals,  and undertaking in-depth reviews of the way organisations use digital and social media, through to creating award-winning campaigns and delivering bespoke training for teams, our communications and digital consultancy offer is deep and wide.

Examples of the kinds of projects we specialise in are:

- creating a new communications model and strategy for a large council delaing with reduced resources and increased demands

- Darren delivers his 'Supercharged Social Media' training for in-house teams

- Darren has spoken at or hosted over 150 industry events in the UK, mainland Europe and the Middle East

- delivering a marketing and branding refresh for a large housing organisation

- facilitating multiple team away days to crowd-source new communications approaches, strategies and campaigns

- creating and leading a new internal communications strategy for one of the UK's largest organisations

- delivering strategic social media reviews, with an action plan for improved engagement and ROI, for 20+ organisations

- Darren delivers tailored mentoring support for Heads of Communications, Communications Managers and Communications Officers

One of our absolute aims is to fly a flag for comms people everywhere.  Connecting and nurturing, mentoring and encouraging, comms2point0.co.uk was created to support our community. We respect the community because we’re part of the community. And we understand the demands placed upon you, we feel your joy and pain.

We’ve delivered a tonne of great projects, for some amazing customers– from mentoring comms professionals, to hosting brilliant events, running successful Twitter chats, developing research into digital communication trends.  Darren mentors several communications professionals around the UK - if you're interested in this drop him a note here.

If it's happening in the UK right now, is digital comms related and in the public sector - we're probably involved. 

If you'd like us to be involved in shaping your next project, creating an important strategy or campaign, or tailored team development give us a shout.

Darren delivered excellent social media training sessions for our elected members. His easy, relaxed manner made delivering training on a subject that didn’t come naturally to some people in the session seem easy.
He was a real hit with our councillors and, best of all, they came out of the session feeling positive, engaged and ready to take action.
If you want to get the most out of social media then a workshop with Darren will give excellent examples of best practice, backed up by the latest research, and all delivered in a relaxed, enjoyable way. Quite simply, the best in the industry.

I have been working with Darren periodically for around six months. Most recently, he has facilitated a session with 22 communications professionals from the two teams at Bournemouth and Poole councils
The experience Darren brought from having worked with so many other local authorities was invaluable. He was able to relate to their work, add value by sharing examples from other organisations and suggest ideas for alternative, better ways of doing things, that team members could discuss and adopt as their preferred way forward. Many left feeling energised and optimistic for the future, and that is very much down to Darren’s ability to get the best out of people, to help them see their worth & what they can bring, and so stimulate them to do the best they can.
I am excited about any further opportunities to work with Darren more in future.

Bringing in comms2Point0 to conduct a review of our social media channels was one of the best decisions we’ve made. We knew that the use and evaluation of our channels was sound but we were looking for some advice and guidance to take our social media to the next level. The review was thorough, quick and enabled the whole team to get involved. As result we were provided with some strong recommendations of how to develop our feeds and get the most from them. All of this and cake! What more could we ask for?
— Kirsty Tobin, Head of Communications at London Borough of Redbridge Council
Darren is one of the most dynamic comms leaders I know. He has been my mentor for the last couple of years because I wanted to learn from somebody who really inspires me - and Darren does. He goes above and beyond and as I result I have grown and developed in my own career. If you need and comms support or solutions I would highly recommend Darren.

We’d love to talk with you about your comms.  However large, or small.  UK based, European, or global.  We're brilliant at shaping strategies that deliver, generating fresh ideas that work (really, really well) and we champion the 'always be learning' mantra.  We believe individuals should be continually working on their specialist communications skills and that organisations should be striving to improve the impact of their communications investment.  Whether you are an individual with ambition or an organisation who wants to do things a little differently, we can work with you on that.

You may be interested in becoming a partner in some of the most innovative and well-attended comms events in the UK – from the alternative industry awards, the UnAwards, and regional training workshops and skills Masterclasses.

Drop us a line and we can have a chat.
