This is a practical and interactive course for communications and other professionals who want to hone their media relations, media writing and talking to the media skills.

Workshop 2:  Advanced social media
In the current, multi-channel communications environment, strategically managing social media is a must for every organization or corporation. And that goes far beyond tactical postings and interaction with individuals or groups, even if they belong to your defined target audiences. Indeed, social media must be embedded in the organizational strategy at multiple levels, ranging from communications and marketing to HR and operations. With this multi-purpose approach to social media, different aspects regarding engagement strategies, channel selection, tone of voice, management tools, evaluation and measurement have to be taken into consideration.

Workshop 3: Writing for the web

Writing for the web is different. People who visit and use your website or Intranet have different needs and expectations to those who read your messages through other channels. In this workshop you will discover how to write great content that meets these needs and keeps your visitors coming back.
