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 looked 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!

The events will give you the chance to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The network is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.
