How to Keep Your Communications Planning Relevant




This webinar is featured as part of the launch of the Leadership Development Program for Communicators, a new certificate-granting program starting November 2023.



Event Overview

There is a growing sense among the communications industry that strategic communications planning is so… 2019. After all, hasn’t the disruption of the pandemic made the idea of communications planning irrelevant?

Well, maybe. On the other hand, is it responsible for communication teams to spend their time and limited resources in tactics and campaigns without any sense of what they’re for, or how to know if they’ve had the desired impact?

That tension between traditional forms of planning and the turbulence of our current time is the focus of this thought-provoking session. We’ll explore refreshingly pragmatic and current approaches to lightweight planning adapted to the emergent nature of the challenges facing communicators today. The session will include:

  • A one page strategic communications plan template
  • A framework for developing a strategy that “walks on two feet” – one deliberate and one emergent
  • Strategies for replacing noise with evidence in communications planning
