We all know the importance of professional development, right? Nothing stands still for long and change is happening all around us – so it’s important to keep developing our skills and knowledge, particularly if you want to take the next step in your comms career.

In this special career development training conference for comms officers and early managers, we’ll help you develop the personal and professional skills you will need for a successful career journey.

There will also be an opportunity to reflect on your own strengths and weaknesses and to plan for the next steps in your career in charity communications.

This event will offer streams so that you can tailor your day to suit your career path. Streams will include skills development in the following areas: leadership, comms, personal and professional.

On the agenda:

  • Developing a growth mindset for success
  • Improving your line management skills
  • Building your sector profile
  • Developing your role when there’s no obvious ‘next step’
  • Tools for driving efficiency and increasing productivity
  • Hear how others have got to their positions and advice for planning your next steps
  • Developing influencer skills and building your credibility
  • Make the most of your day: techniques for optimising and planning your day
  • How to network and make the most of your contacts
  • Evidencing your impact and your own ROI
  • Top tips for taking charge of your own professional development
  • How to develop more strategic thinking
  • Handling difficult people and situations

Refreshments and snacks will be provided during the breaks and there’ll be a two-course networking lunch.
