Every communications campaign needs a plan – but it can be a challenge balancing scheduling and resource allocation with the need for flexibility, changing circumstances and unexpected events. How can you stay on top of workload, resources and timelines, keep colleagues and stakeholders up to date, while making sure you remain focused on your key objectives?

In this session we’ll look at tools and techniques for planning creative and high-impact comms campaigns that hit deadlines, deliver on objectives, and crucially, don’t burn everyone out along the way! 

As part of the event, we’re planning an interactive ‘campaign jukebox’ session – bring your case studies of communications campaigns delivered or in development for a chance to get on-the-spot practical and creative input and feedback from your peers. Please let Jess know if you’d like to find out more about taking part.

She’ll look in particular at the beginning of the process: setting Objectives and understanding your Audience, with a quick overview of the other elements (Strategy/Ideas, Implementation and Scoring/Evaluation) and how this robust and flexible planning framework can help your charity plan and deliver great campaigns.​
