You have organized the best exhibition of the year or set up a ground-breaking educational program. You have worked hard with curators, conservators, educators, and everything is ready to rock, but now you wonder… how can I bring people in? How can I reach my audience, and what should I be telling them? Informing and engaging the public is a crucial process for the success and sustainability of heritage institutions. However, heritage-related university programs often do not provide adequate training in Communications, and heritage managers who cannot afford to bring in external experts might find themselves in serious trouble when it comes to communicating and promoting what they are doing.

More than ever, it is critical that solid messages be part of an effective communication strategy for today’s leaders. By focusing more on content, when embracing traditional as well as social media, leaders can more effectively manage and enhance the reputation of their organizations.

This 3-day interactive, content-driven, virtual course is a focused learning experience that provides a systemic approach to successfully attract key audiences’ attention through traditional, new, and social media. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a working guide to effectively communicate news, initiatives, and announcements of their organization and manage communication around a crisis or issue.
