Past Workshop day –  Friday 23 November 2012 – featuring all three workshops

The Geneva Communicators Network is pleased to introduce a series of workshops to help communicators in the Geneva region brush up on specific communications tasks, our next date for the workshops:

09h30-16h30, Friday 23 November 2012, Geneva
Cost: 420 CHF for GCN members, 550 CHF for non-members  (includes a buffet lunch and tea/coffee)
Location:  International University in Geneva  ICC 20, Rte de Pré-Bois – 1215 Geneva 15, Switzerland

Three one-day workshops will be run simultaneously, with a networking lunch to allow participants to mingle briefly. Each session will include a combination of theory and practice to help communicators improve their specific skills. The groups will be small (maximum 15)  to allow instructors to address each participants specific needs.

Workshop 1: Crisis management for communicators
In today’s digital age, crisis management has become more immediate and complex than ever before. Corporate crises rarely remain rooted in one country and through the increasing use of social media, companies see themselves confronted with a whole new set of risks. This calls for new methodologies and a fresh approach. Communication plays a key role in successful crisis management.

Workshop 2: Improving presentation skills for communicators
Communication implies a two way process, whether it is one to one or within a group. Do you know how effective you are as a communicator? Are your presentations effective? Are your messages reaching the right people in the best way? How are you perceived as a communicator? In a context where people are submerged in information, we need to find news ways to connect with our audiences. If you can demonstrate value or benefit of what you’re saying, you’ll keep the audience focused on you! This workshop will help you answer those questions and help to perfect your capacity as an effective communicator. Participants will be filmed throughout the workshop in order to maximize the experience with ongoing feedback from the trainers. Seeing yourself on video provides an additional value both during and after the workshop.

Workshop 3: Web writing for communicators
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.
