Event Details

Effective communication is central to being a successful think tank or advocacy group. It is a critical part of shaping policy and practice. To ensuring that research is relevant and credible. That evidence and analysis gets to decision-makers when they need it, and how they need it.

This long course covers everything from audience mapping to podcasting. From design to social media. It provides practical examples of how to plan and execute communications strategies, and of what effective communication teams and processes look like. It will teach you what digital longform is, and why you should be using it to showcase your next report. It will show you how to take your events to the next level and make sure they reach the widest possible audience.

Four highly-experience trainers will guide you through eight modules, exposing you to cutting-edge knowledge and helping you to apply it. Participants will walk away with a comprehensive set of resources to help them put their learning into practice. For those who would like to pick and choose only a handful of modules, that option is available too.

The aim of this course is to strengthen the communication teams, skills and activities of think tanks, research institutes or advocacy organisations. By completing this course, participants will: 

  • Gain a solid understanding of the range of activities that can be undertaken by a communications team.
  • Be able to assess their organisation’s current skillset and establish priority areas for improvement.
  • Understand how to apply a range of communications channels and activities in a strategic way to achieve cut-through and impact.
  • Have a grasp of the basic principles of design and how to apply them in brand implementation.
  • Be better positioned to respond to a changing research communications landscape.
