What does the training cover?
The 2 x 3.5 hour (2 mornings 9:00am - 12:30) strategic communications and messaging zoom intensive takes participants through the latest research from the fields of cognitive linguistics and psychology, along with some practical tools to develop communications that win.
The topics covered in the Strategic Communications and Messaging zoom intensive are:
Choosing the right frames and values for an inspiring campaign;
Human emotions and therefore actions are driven by underlying values. Science shows that priming the most useful values in your messages affects the way your audience reacts. Learn how framing your issue correctly will make it attractive to your audience.
Messaging pitfalls to avoid
Many communications sabotage themselves through counter-intuitive mistakes that actually reinforce the opposition’s message and weaken their own. Learn what to do and what to avoid when crafting your communications materials. You’ll never look at a message the same way again!
Countering misinformation and ‘fake news’
In a world awash with fake news, how do you stem the flood of misinformation? Includes case studies from around the world.
Developing a solid communications strategy
Many campaigns begin before their communications strategy is properly thought out. Learn how to create a simple roadmap for your communications that will keep you on track and make sure you’re putting your hard earned resources in the right place.
Making sure your messages work for your audiences
This part of the course includes mapping out your audiences and crafting a message that the right people will love - and the right ones will hate! It also covers options for testing your messages before you go public.
Tools to get your people united behind your messaging
A chance to share ideas on what’s most useful in terms of resources and tools to keep your own organisation and your allies on track and on message during your campaign.
Apply what you’ve learnt to your own context, share skills and get feedback
Throughout the webinar participants will work on live examples from their own work to develop their campaign messages, learn from each other and apply the new knowledge they’ve learned.
- Understand the principles of framing messages for success;
- Know the dos and don’ts to apply when developing communications materials;
- Develop an understanding of narratives and how they work in campaigning;
- Gain a template for a well thought out communications strategy;
- Get insights into testing your messages with various audiences;
- Develop the skills to apply what you’ve learnt across your organisation and allies;
- Gain a set of new ideas for how to message on your own issue;
- Get pointers and resources to develop your messaging knowledge further.
