What should a modern local government communications team look like? 

with Simon Jones, Executive Director of Communications at Westco and a panel of experts.

Wed 8 June 2022 - online
12 – 12.45pm 

The demands placed on local government communication teams are always changing. Join us on Wednesday, 8 June to discuss the skills your team needs to be effective.

The demands placed on local government communication teams are becoming ever more complex as the landscape around us evolves. Teams often struggle to bring in new skill sets, particularly in the digital arena where there are always new platforms and channels to embrace. 

Many of us are constantly asking the question, what is the ideal skills mix for professional communicators and in what areas are we lacking? In this free webinar, we’ll be talking with some of the most experienced local government communication leaders to get their insight on what’s working, what isn’t, and where teams and individuals need to grow.

Join us online for a lively lunchtime discussion led by Simon Jones, the former chair of LGcomms and current Executive Director of Communications at Westco. If you want to see how your team measures up, don’t miss out!
