My weekly gift to help small companies get their heads around comms!
I’m just over six months into the journey that is CEW Communications. And, phew! What a huge learning curve and experience so far!
While I have big ambitions for the future of the company, model and the way it will partner with equally ambitious clients, one thing has really struck me in the past six months…
Now, obviously starting any business is going to involve a lot of face-to-face meetings, and I am all for having a chat…
A lot of the meetings I’ve had have been with companies that *think* they need PR. With a lot of these I’ve spent a long time explaining the value of communications and to think of it outside of just press…
I have genuinely lost track of the number of meetings I have had — or the caffeine intake — that ultimately turned into a session where I taught them about communications. None of them were at a point where they needed support, or they had a fixation with just being seen in TechCrunch…rather than unlocking the true potential in comms done well!
A solution — and my gift to all young startups who need help — is The Communications Workshop.
As part of my personal and business value of paying it forward, you can now sign up to a free weekly email workshop covering multiple different areas of communications. So whether you’re a founder, the marketer or the intern, you can all learn how to think strategically and creatively across multiple areas in comms.
This way you can keep it lean, learn some new skills and have a better understanding of the function for a future where you might need to bring someone in to support you.
I’ve just published Workshop number eight and you can see all previous editions below:
I’d love to help more of you with my weekly email, so please head over to the website and sign up!
You can also check out our new Startup Services for when you’re ready to get more serious about comms, but don’t need a retained agency. We come in as the expert consultants to train your team!
