Warsaw, 12-14 December 2017

This training is to help TechSoup Europe Network partner organizations’ staff acquire skills and tools to more effectively communicate with target groups. Regardless of whether you work in marketing or in social activities, if you need to constantly look for best media formats and strategies to convey your message to increase outreach and social impact, this training is a unique opportunity for you.

 

Program – Getting out of the Box

You will learn techniques successfully used and tested by narrative journalists, campaigners and digital champions.

During this 3 day intensive course you will practice identifying and mapping target audiences to persuade them through powerful stories that have a long-lasting impact. You will get up to speed with the latest practices in modern-day campaigning and learn to combine dozens of formats which can be combined in a multitude of creative ways to get your message across. And you will put the theory into practice by trying the techniques out for yourself applying the techniques on real examples from your work.

 

Aim

This training will help you acquire new skills and tools to build stronger relations with NGOs, preferably based on area of work, eg health, sports, environment, culture. Such a targeted approach is essential to increase the outreach and social impact of the TechSoup Europe Network.
