Courses

Starting on Wednesday the 10th of February 2021, we will be running a series of free, weekly, lunchtime workshops over Zoom. Each session won’t be more than 30 minutes long. Sign up to our newsletter for the details on how to join the calls, or grab a free ticket on Eventbrite and we’ll send you the Zoom link. You don’t need to come to them all!

Wednesday workshops, huh? Tell me more!

Our aim is to get you thinking a bit differently about the digital tools and storytelling techniques you use every day. We want to create a supportive environment to share ideas, and send you off feeling inspired and equipped with some handy new tools. At the very least you should meet some nice new people.

Each session will include an introduction from us, a task for you to complete live on the call (sometimes in pairs/teams), and a bit of discussion and reflection. We are, of course, available by email in between sessions to answer questions and offer further support.

Here are just a few of the subjects we’ll be covering in these sessions:

Using social creatively: Why and how to find the fun in digital communications

Setting the tone: Sharpen your online storytelling skills in half an hour.

Collaborating effectively: How to be there without ‘being there’.

Top tips for popular platforms: Get the most out of your social posts.

Building your brand online: Creative ways to think about who you are and what you stand for.

Dealing with a crisis: Put out fires the classy way.

Beyond social media: What else is out there? The platforms and approaches that might be better for you.

Podcasting: Is it for you? We’ll look at what this trendy medium does well (and what it doesn’t).

Understanding analytics: Get to grips with the latest tools and stats, and keep tabs on your hard work.
