An Intensive 10-day Training Course

Facilitating Change through Effective Communications

Transforming your Corporate Communication Toolbox

Course Introduction

This training Course on Guiding Change Through Corporate Communications Course provides an opportunity for the Communications Practitioner to re-calibrate and define a different path towards achieving effective corporate communications in a world of rapid change. It forces a rethink of how to align purpose with outcome using the myriad channels available in this connected world.

Module One, Mastering Corporate Communications  is designed to renew the Practitioner’s tool kit and upgrade the range of skills needed to win the communications battle. The worlds of Public Relations, Corporate Communications and Marketing have collided to create new and different operating norms with new rules and roles.  It is therefore imperative that practitioners in the communications space rethink their approach to Public Relations, Corporate Communications and Marketing.

Module Two, Corporate Communications Redefined! will help practitioners align communications strategy to organizational imperatives and move from focussing on tactics to developing and implementation communications strategy. It will take the practitioner along the journey from research and planning to programme implementation while recognizing the importance of corporate communications in delivering on corporate objectives.

The highlights of the 10-day Oxford Management Centre training course are as follows:

  • The New Rules of Marketing and Communications
  • The Use of Social Media to Reach Specific Target Audiences
  • How to Create Content that Sticks?
  • Aligning Communications and Organizational Goals
  • Identifying and Strengthening Internal Gaps
  • Measurement and Evaluation
  • Designing the Next Iteration


The training Course is split into two modules:

MODULE I - Mastering Corporate Communications

MODULE II -Corporate Communications Redefined

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-weeks training course.


The objectives of this training program are:

  • To provide participants with the tools to align audiences with media and messages
  • To help participants seamlessly merge traditional and new media strategies and tactics
  • To sharpen the focus on Strategic Communications as a corporate enabler
  • To help participants tweak their “Big Picture” strategies.
  • To help participants re-position their Future Strategy and Implementation

Training Methodology

It is widely accepted that adult learners move from being subject centred to being problem centred.  As a result, the methodologies to be utilized in this intervention will include:  lecturettes; case studies via written submissions, podcasts or video; role plays; journaling and reflective reports.

Activities will also be biased towards experimentation and analyses of live cases and therefore rely heavily on activity based group work.  A key component of this learning experience will be the sharing of experiences to highlight the collective knowledge of the room.
