So Boris has announced that he wants a significant return to normality from November.

And with further steps being taken to ease Coronavirus restrictions we’ve been thinking about the training we deliver.

January was the last face to face session we held but before we started again we wanted to know what people thought.

We asked our clients and put polls out on social media asking how they felt about face to face training and the response was interesting with a real mixture of views.

Some people said they were ready to start training face to face now, some said they would be ready within the next three months, with the rest preferring to wait for a further three months.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to deliver a mixture of the two – we’ll start face to face training from September and are rolling out the virtual sessions we’ve been running during lockdown, with dates in place for the rest of the year.

Our first in-person Media and Marketing Masterclass will take place on Tuesday, September 15th at the Business Lodge in Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent. We’re of course working closely with the team there to ensure all social distancing guidance and safety measures are met.

We’re also absolutely delighted to announce a series of four virtual training webinars:

Writing Kick-Ass Copy

Who it’s aimed at: SME’s who want to market themselves, business owners who want to shout about what they do, junior comms/marketing or PR staff who want to upskill so managers don’t have to incur the cost of outsourcing.

Knowing the Media

Wowing Your Audience on Camera

In a nutshell: Learn how to act and more importantly know what to say in front of camera – to become more confident, drive home your message and help you bring in more sales.

Who it’s aimed at: Any business or organisation who use vlogs or on-screen presentations, as part of their marketing and sales strategy and those that don’t – but want to.

These courses are just a starter for ten as we’re working behind the scenes to add to the sessions we deliver on-line. Don’t forget if you want something bespoke or you feel ready to return to face to face training please drop us a line or give us a call to chat through.
