- Course overview
Despite what people in communications say, ‘communications’ is really not that complicated.
What is complicated is a global pandemic, a lockdown, and the fear and fright that brings.
Things are not easy right now, but never has it been more important to keep communicating (talking and listening) as we engage with supporters, stakeholders, funders and friends to keep the show on the road.
Our Comms and marketing made easy coursewith Lawrence Brodie from Electrify has been adapted for the times we live in, and although it will be delivered digitally, you can be sure it will still pop!
This session will focus on the thing we believe every third sector organisation needs to do: tell stories.
It will be full of interaction, engagement and discussion as we take you on a whistle-stop tour of what we reckon makes a great story, especially during a crisis. We’ll even show you some of the work we’ve been engaged in since March.
- Overall course aim
Everyone working in the third sector must play a positive part in the promotion of your charity’s mission and work at this time. It’s crucial.
You have amazing stories, which can influence funders, stakeholders, civic and elected leaders, your supporters, and the wider public. So, we’re going to ban jargon, cut out codswallop and create a bunkum-free zone by guiding you through a cracking morning of comms advice and storytelling support.
- Course objectives
During this session we will:
• Find out what you need to get from the session
• Explain the value of storytelling
• Take you through our six stages to get a great story
• Identify what currently works (or how to adapt)
• Brainstorm some of your own organisation’s storytelling needs, together
