Memorable moments from our recent Radisson Business School Ajman. We have written an advanced level presentations workshop for managers who have to pitch, present and talk in public. We are proud to be working with the Radisson Hotel Group (since 2013) - leaders in professional development. A great team - hard working and lots of fun - as always.

The European Commission connecting with young people. 512 million people live in the EU – and all of them have their own stories and interests. What do you think?

We all need clear, precise writing if we want our readers to understand and react to our messages.

Here is my checklist to help us all writing meaningful, effective texts.

This checklist should help you when you are proofreading. Take some time and ask yourself these important questions about your text.

Achieving impact through public speaking. Yesterday was the day to deliver a counter punch through a blistering speech with impeccable timing, intonation and voice control. Unfortunately, the UK's UN Ambassador, Karen Pierce looks quite disinterested as she recites a list of concerns. A missed opportunity to turn heads with impactful speaking.

Communications activities need to be backed up by a communication strategy. Too often organisations are doing lots of communication activities but with no strategy. Planning a communication strategy is not rocket science.

A communications strategy is a complete plan of action to coordinate communication activities and resources and maximise their impact to support organisational / company / government reputation and business/corporate/policy objectives. A good strategy should define a hierarchy of goals, initiatives and KPIs to ensure those objectives are achieved.

Advanced Writing Skills is our most popular training programme at Communicating Europe+. Writing is a difficult skill and many people find writing and drafting texts frustrating. Often people have difficulties with the structure of their sentences.

So, here is a simple checklist that you can use when you proofread your emails, reports, position papers or news stories. (You do proofread – don’t you?).

The age of smartphone videos has arrived. We all know that. But, we also need to make authentic video stories.
Social media is hungry for authentic content and smartphone videos can add a new dimension to our communications. Too often though, people shoot a video, print a publication and send out a blog without bringing these together.

All you need to create authentic videos is your smartphone – plus a plug-in microphone and maybe a small tripod. But most of all, our video stories need to fit our communications strategy.

A lot of policy documents tend to be very factual and descriptive. This comes from a respect for procedure that is commonplace in institutions and governments. It is also understandable that policy officers do not want to load their texts with public relations ‘spin’. However, we can lift our writing and give emphasis in a way that is appropriate to the policy context.
