Many communication practitioners are working alone or have been handed the role of ‘communication’ as a segue from another role. They may also not have the resources, time or knowledge to undertake relevant communication training that is suitable for their needs.

Communication 202 is a one day course designed for these practitioners – personalised for smaller groups (focused on individual skill levels) and based in New Zealand’s provincial heartlands.

Learning outcomes will include:

  • understanding the role of ‘communication’ and the importance of clarifying expectations
  • understanding the key concepts and language of ‘communication’
  • how to create momentum – balancing constraints and opportunity
  • how to create a simple communication plan that will deliver for small to medium organisations
  • knowing how to write communication objectives
  • knowing how to segment stakeholders and audiences to achieve greatest effect
  • recognising the primary tools of the communication practitioner – and where they are best applied
  • understanding what successful communication looks like and how to measure it.

Communication 202 is a collaborative and personalised course that will provide specific learning outcomes as well as useful connections to other communication practitioners in your area.

Participants will be invited to share experiences, ask lots of questions, and will leave with the outline of their own communication plan drafted.
