Communications: everyone has an opinion, and everyone thinks they’re an expert. It’s a problem accountancy and legal teams in organisations rarely encounter, but for communication professionals it can be a common frustration, and it means that – more than any other professional service – we need to be brilliant at influencing.

Great influencing skills can ensure communications professionals are at the top table, able to advise on strategy, and in a position to make a real difference to their organisation’s decision making and therefore its reputation.

Join PRINZ Fellow Tracey Bridges for an interactive workshop aimed at helping practitioners gain personal influence – an important skill for communicators who want to progress, and really make a difference.

Course content

This will be an interactive workshop, where participants will be able to put their influencing abilities to the test in a safe environment. In this workshop we will discuss and learn about:

  • why influence matters, and what difference influence can make
  • what senior management teams want from their communication teams
  • what happens without influence (war stories)
  • key attributes of influential people
  • tools and techniques for gaining more influence

Learning outcomes

Workshop attendees will be:

  • More confident in their ability to influence
  • Able to critically assess their own personal influencing skills, and know the areas they need to work on to gain more influence
  • Able to implement influencing strategies that are appropriate in their workplace and in their team context

Who should attend? 

Professional communicators, particularly those at junior or intermediate levels, or those working in challenging organizational context
