OVERVIEW
Communication Practitioners find themselves caught with the daily ‘activities’ of supporting a series of isolated events such as dissemination of an occasional newsletter, writing a hurried speech for the chair, among other things, leaving them sometimes bored and not finding real strategic value in their work.
Strategic Role
As strategic communicators, however, they can be more deliberate, innovative, savvy and less reactive in their practice, positioning their services as the most critical in the organization. Management must always see the role of the Communicator as the most essential in the overall success of the organization.
ACDC has introduced this annual class of 15-20 Communication practitioners, who come to network with others in their field, hone their strategic communication skills, explore and learn about new media tools that effectively bring change or improve an organization’s bottom line.
Participants work with top experts from the field while studying a host of communication building blocks. These range from planning and executing Results Based Communication Strategies to daily aligning their work with organizational goals. Furthermore, they develop skills they can immediately apply in the workplace, such as social media skills, presentation delivery, media interviews and storytelling. To enrich the program, facilitators and practitioners have an international mix.
