RED THREAD COURSES
Good communication starts with strong messages. Our bespoke messaging workshops support organisations that need to talk about themselves, their products, or their issues in a clear, credible and concrete way. It’s also extremely useful for building group agreement among staff who need to communicate professionally inside and outside the office.
More and more people are expected to speak in public as part of their job. But even the best prepared presenters won’t make a good impression on their audience if their delivery is weak.
Professional Media Training is essential if your organisation is facing a big media campaign or crisis which requires your spokespeople to talk to journalists. Former journalists are best placed to understand the mindset and needs of journalists and will equip your teams with the techniques for handling everything from background briefings to aggressive broadcast interviews.
