Training and Strategic Advice

In times of rapid changes and technological progress, keeping up to date with the latest tools and trends is important for communication and project staff alike. We give trainings, advisory services, coachings and strategic advice (both online and onsite) to a variety of clients from the public and private sector on for example how to draft a communication strategy; communication and EU projects/programmes; how to tell your (project) story; non-violent communication and visualisation techniques; social media management; media outreach strategies or how to produce videos in different formats.
