Short Online Courses

I have taught the CIPR internal communications diploma at Bournemouth University since 2016. I relish the opportunity to teach the students, and I also provide bespoke training for clients on key areas to suit their needs.

I’ve created these short courses to help comms colleagues to push the boundaries of their work and encourage their organisations to change and be bold. In uncertain times, the only certainty is ourselves, and we all need to be more confident, purposeful and impactful in our work. These courses are designed to help you achieve change with impact or empower your leaders and wider organisations to be more bold.

Equipping you to help your organisation survive and thrive at times of change or challenge.

Equipping you to help your organisation survive and thrive at times of change or challenge.

Course 1) Impact Lab

Helping your organisation make sustained change with impactful communication.

An introduction to how communication helps organisations, and crucially people, to change and sustain the change to thrive.

This short course is a basic introduction to comms principles needed to help people adapt and change their behaviours, that can be sustained, so that the organisation can shift in line with its strategy. We’re at a point where we’ve had to make changes at speed in businesses of all shapes and sizes. But how will we sustain and keep the good behaviours and ways of doing that have been made? This course is designed to help you achieve that sustained change in your organisations.

You’ll have templates and a workbook to help you plan for change and keep you focused on the objective. You’ll be part of a small group of up to six students. A combination of short lecture, additional reading to give you context, and group discussion to work through some easy-to-use change communication frameworks will help you put this session into practice at work.

The package includes:

  • Pre-workshop activity
  • One 90 minute online workshop
  • Course materials
  • Closed online community to share your thoughts and ideas and support each other
  • 15 minute individual follow up call to see how you are doing, find out what the blockages are and suggest solutions

Fee: £200

Course 2) Being Bold Lab

Helping your organisation be bold and communicate in a world of uncertainty

As the world has been turned on its head, and just about every business has been affected by coronavirus, now is a good time to take stock of your organisation’s culture and ethics.

This course is all about bold conversations and decision making. This time has reminded us all of what matters most, it’s given us an insight into what it could be like if we slowed down, consumed less, enjoyed nature more and spent time with loved ones. This revelation may not be new for many who were already making conscious decisions, but it is likely to lead to lasting behaviours and see consumers and many businesses making more careful choices about how and where they spend their money and who they partner with. Our ethical decision-making is critical to how we treat our people, customers, suppliers and planet.

This workshop will help you work through how your organisation’s decision-making can incorporate an ethical framework, use data and listening to understand and respond, and how that could impact your business success in the future.

You’ll be part of a small group of up to six students. A combination of short presentation, additional reading to give you context and group discussion to work through some easy-to-use frameworks will help you put this session into practice at work.
