Event Description

In today's competitive landscape, the ability to effectively connect with the right audience, through the right channels, at the right moments, is paramount for business success.  Strategic Communication planning serves as the cornerstone for both external and internal communications, as well as marketing and public relations endeavors. Without a comprehensive plan that encompasses all facets, effective marketing becomes a daunting task. 


This introductory-level course in Strategic Communication Planning is designed to equip participants with the foundational skills necessary to navigate the complexities of modern communication strategies.   Under the guidance of course leader Jill Ellis-Worthington, this course simplifies the intricate process of strategic communication planning into manageable steps.


By the course's conclusion, participants will achieve the following learning outcomes:

  • Identify and engage your target market.
  • Craft branding language specific to potential customers and clients.
  • Describe issues faced and develop strategies to surmount them.
  • Formulate a general action plan, targeting specific tactics.
  • Develop measurables and consider budget allocations.
  • Each participant will leave the workshop with the framework and knowledge to build an effective strategic communication plan for their business.

Equipped with this knowledge and framework, each participant will depart the workshop empowered to construct a robust strategic communication plan tailored to their business needs.
