Summer Communications Trainings in Chicago

 

Get ahead of the game this summer with professional development trainings from the Workshop.

Learn how to:

  • Tell your stories in numbers — making mining the data easy.
  • Pitch it real good: How to tell stories the news media is looking for and develop your own compelling, pitchable story.
  • Got Google+? It should be at the heart of your social media plan.
  • Advocacy does not = lobbying: Get beyond just meeting with legislators to actually changing public policy.
  • Develop an “elevator speech.”
  • Use your smartphone to tell and distribute your story, cheaply and easily.
