what’s in your comms room 101?

I'd love a chance to appear on the TV Show Room 101, although I'd struggle to narrow it down to just five choices. But what would your 'Comms 101' choices be?

I have been lucky recently to get to a couple of top-notch learning events – the LG Communications Digital seminar in Coventry and the comms2point0 Campaign Masterclass in Birmingham.

Instead of doing a blog on all the things I learnt from the event (of which there were many), I’ve instead opted for a post that will hopefully act as a little bit of therapy for comms peeps. It certainly did for us anyway at the time.

#uncampaign: one masterclass and six ways comms can make a difference

There has never been more pressure on comms people to deliver and prove they've delivered. Our event will help you create and execute better campaigns.

For a while now I’ve had a growing feeling that unless comms people in the public sector can look finance square in the eye then they may not be long for this world.

“So what,” they will ask “difference do you make?”

If the answer is that you helped save the organisation by better communicating with people by working with the contact centre better or some channel shift then you’ve got a chance. If you know you saved £500k through that campaign on recruiting foster carers even better.
