Expert training for councils - delivered by a local government specialist
The local government environment is ever-shifting and effective, high-impact communication has never been more critical.
Councils worldwide face the challenges of the digital communication age, with the community able to see further into their operations than ever before, and instant channels enabling information to go global in a heartbeat.
At the same time, research shows regular employees now have a significant influence when talking to others (including their social networks) about your council. Every council officer and elected member now has a profound effect on your council’s future, through the way they communicate - both formally and informally - with your audiences.
Neryl East draws from her extensive local government experience to deliver tailored communication workshops and leadership coaching for councils, ensuring leaders and team members develop the outstanding skills they need to communicate effectively in today's reputation-driven economy.
All workshops can be tailored for large or small groups, focusing on the issues most important to your council.
