Connecting with your Audience in Tough Times — FULLY BOOKED

3 April @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

This webinar is now fully booked but you can receive a recording of the webinar for free.

What is it about?

In this time of self isolation, with venues and buildings closing their doors temporarily, how do you keep connecting with your audiences?

During this special online session, Jon Sleigh will take you through an engagement stocktake and cover how engagement can be tailored so that you can connect meaningfully with your audiences during this challenging time.

Jon will use Wellbeing Indexes as a guide for best practice to support your audiences (and you) through isolation. And he will take you through engagement considerations including safeguarding, tone and forums to share.

This is a free to access, one and a half hour session. Participants will also receive a recording of the session.

What will I gain?

— Space to rethink your engagement plans in tough times

— Tips for helping your audiences through isolation

— An understanding of how to look after the wellbeing of yourself and your audiences

Who is it for?

This session is for anybody who would like to connect with their audiences while their building is closed.

How do I take part?

We will be using an online training platform called WebEx for this event. Before booking, please complete our online training checklist to ensure you get the most out of this training.
