Why Should You Attend This Event?

To engage with your audiences, you need to have effective content. Attractive, engaging material and paced, timed and cut to perfection. It's a skill set you may not already have, but as communications professionals, need.

There's a range of tools you can use to do this, but you must first understand what makes engaging content. How you can get your message across. And what kind of content works and why.

Join Holyrood as we explore Content communications. You'll learn from best practice, innovative solutions, and peer to peer interactive learning.

This is part five in our communications series. Explore our other communications events and find out about our series booking discount.
