Content calendars – turning a useful tool into a fundamental asset

Midlands networking group

6 February 2019

A content calendar is essential to managing your comms year-round. And vital for keeping the whole team clued in to what’s planned and when. So how do you get everyone on board, proactively using the calendar? And how can you ensure it’s a tool that streamlines your workload?

In this session, we explored how to take on the tricky task of creating and planning a content calendar that pulls together different teams, garner support from senior leadership and help you weave together a busy comms schedule.

About the Midlands Networking Group

The Midlands Networking Group is a network of comms professionals working in UK charities and not-for-profit organisations in the Midlands.

You’ll be given the opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer-to-peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ and relaxed environment.

Each event will focus on a topic which delegates will discuss in small groups before feeding back to the group as a whole. There’ll also be plenty of time for networking.

In between events, stay in touch with your peers by joining our Facebook Midlands Networking Group.

If there’s a topic you’d like to discuss or if you’d be interested in speaking at a future event, please contact our events team.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please contact our events team to be added to the Midlands Networking Group mailing list.
