Workshop 1: Crisis management for communicators
In today’s digital age, crisis management has become more immediate and complex than ever before. Corporate crises rarely remain rooted in one country and through the increasing use of social media, companies see themselves confronted with a whole new set of risks. This calls for new methodologies and a fresh approach. Communication plays a key role in successful crisis management.

Workshop 2: Improving presentation skills for communicators
Communication implies a two way process, whether it is one to one or within a group. Do you know how effective you are as a communicator? Are your presentations effective? Are your messages reaching the right people in the best way? How are you perceived as a communicator? This workshop will help you answer those questions and help to perfect your capacity as an effective communicator. Participants will be filmed throughout the workshop in order to maximize the experience with ongoing feedback from the trainers. Seeing yourself on video provides an additional value both during and after the workshop.
