Public Sector Communications Academy - have you booked your place?
This year’s Public Sector Communications Academy in Leeds on October 18 and 19 promises something for everyone.
Crisis communications, campaign planning, best in class social media, place making, evaluation, behaviour change, culture change and income generation are all major themes of Academy, with changes in the format meaning that delegates will be able to build their own agenda based on what is right for them.
Major names confirmed so far include ex-editor of the Sun David Yelland, Anastasia Knox of Britain Thinks, Conrad Bird of the Cabinet office, Professor Paul Willis and senior government advisor John Mcternan. Other big names are expected soon.
Delegates will be able pick and mix events and activities over the two days which will include emergency comms, role playing, spot mentoring, practical workshops and masterclasses. They will also be able to hone their skills in a number of leadership sessions which will provide advice and guidance on how to boost your career.
This year’s Academy is brought to you collectively by LGcomms, LGA, the Government Communications Service and Comms 2 Point 0.
