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

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

- 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 18 organisations

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

We’re often asked to create online resources for organisations too in order to spread good practice wider and deeper. Some of the resources we’re most proud of include the Local Government Association’s ‘Digital Councils’ and the ‘Elected members guide to social media’ for the Improvement Service Scotland.

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.
— Caroline Taylor, senior comms officer, South Ribble Borough Council
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
When organising a conference in Jordan for Foreign Office comms and digital officers across the Middle East and North Africa region, we realised we needed to add some panache, innovation, expertise - and humour. We were already big fans of comms2point0 from a distance, so when we plucked up the courage to approach Dan and Darren, we were delighted they were keen. Dan and Darren added calm where there were storms - with remarkable diplomatic skills of their own at times. They were reliable, hardworking and engaged throughout the planning process and during the conference itself. We knew we could trust them and let them just run with it - professionals to the core.
— Craig Morley, Deputy Head of MENA Strategic Policy, Foreign & Commonwealth Office
comms2point0 took an in-depth look at our social media accounts and activity and, based on statistics and best practice, came up with 23 insightful recommendations. The work goes a long way towards ensuring we understand return on investment from social, will help us share best practice across our many services, and truly focus our activity in this area on business goals. Darren and Dan were a pleasure to work with. They got straight to the heart of the brief and we had lots of fun along the way. They clearly have an in-depth knowledge of social media and the pros and cons of the various channels. I have no hesitation in recommending comms2point0.
— Colin Wood, Communications Manager, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough 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.

I’m starting to equate comms2point0 with putting the enjoyment back into work. If 00 is a licence to kill, a 2point0 is a licence to enjoy what you do.
