As the majority of your clients are now working more from home, digital communication is in its ascent, whilst more traditional forms of communication are descending. It is now the time to be more digitally flexible to provide new ways of promoting key messages, transparency and representing your business positively.

This virtual ‘Mastering Digital Communications’ training course is specifically designed to provide market-leaders with the digital awareness and advanced skills to maximise different media platforms, learn how to develop and protect your brand and build trust with your audience to achieve business objectives during this challenging time.

Through the use of virtual breakout rooms, to facilitate delegate participation in smaller groups, gain a much better understanding on how you can improve your digital communication.

Polls will be used to answer questions on a range of  key digital communication topics.

Key learning resources and information on digital communication to support you on your day’s training will be distributed across the course of the day.

There will be plenty of opportune moments for you to network, share resources and experiences with other delegates. Gain valuable contacts with other like-minded peers to help create an invaluable support network to further your digital channels within your business.

Attend this virtual training course to create a practical toolkit, based on tried and tested, real-life experiences, that provides you with an enhanced capability in digital communications, collaboration and how to manage and mitigate risks online.
