24 Mar Comms Leaders and COVID-19
These are unusual times. Yesterday the Prime Minister announced unprecedented measures to keep us all safe and to keep the NHS running. I hope that your employer has taken the responsible step of sending you home. In which case, many of you will be busy managing Coronovirus communications for your stakeholders and colleagues. You may also be juggling the joint challenges of working remotely, and home-schooling or entertaining your kids.
Comms Leaders has always been an agile business, so although we’d rather be out and about meeting people, we are completely set up for home-working, with or without pets, kids, partners in self-isolation etc. Like everyone, we are concerned about the effect this virus will have on the health and finances of our families, friends and all our clients and candidates.
We are here if you need us. Whether you would like a review of your CV or LinkedIn profile, to benchmark salaries, look into short term comms support, or chat about your options – we would love to hear from you.
Meanwhile, our sister business, The Academy, a specialist in delivering communication skills training, has been busy rewriting all its training programmes to be 100% virtually deliverable. Providing virtual training opportunities to bring your teams together during this period of remote / home working could be a powerful way to keep teams connected and engaged. More information on these training programmes can be found here.
Here are a few resources which I hope you’ll find useful:
If you are interested in writing a blog for Comms Leaders sharing your experience of communicating during this crisis, please get in touch with me: email@example.com.
Wishing you all well.
