Three communication-themed seminars to help businesses save time, reduce stress and increase energy and efficiency

Untitled PageWith news headlines highlighting the fact that bad communication is a barrier to professional practice, Anglia Ruskin University’s Survive & Thrive programme has designed three free of charge communication-themed seminars to help businesses save time, reduce stress, increase energy and efficiency.

Organisations are made up internally of people with different skills, experience and personalities. In today’s fast-paced working environment, businesses have to adapt quickly to survive and communication can easily be forgotten. Improving understanding between departments, for example, the technical team and the marketing team can bring huge benefits. The first Improving Business Communication seminar on the 8 March will bridge the communication gaps between different disciplines and personality types.

On the 23 March and 10 May, businesses in the East of England can find out about the benefits of social media in a seminar entitled Connecting with Customers. The morning session is about using technology and marketing combined to communicate with new customers or reach existing ones in a different way.

Managing change and keeping everyone onboard during the transition can be challenging and stressful. The Planning & Communicating the Benefits of Change on the 24 March considers the human aspects of change and how, with careful and effective planning, the risk of failure can be minimised.
