Upskill on presenting with a free Training Workshop
Marketing professionals in Birmingham wanting to brush up on their teleconferencing skills are being offered free spaces on a training course – but spaces are limited.
Members of the Birmingham Publicity Association are being given the chance to take part in the free course being held this month in the city centre.
There are just 20 free spaces available to members, which are valued at over £150 each, and guests will take part in a four-hour course on how to present better via video and teleconferences.
The workshop will be hosted by Jack Milner, who has worked with companies including the BBC, Virgin Media, McCann Worldwide, Microsoft and Channel 4 as well as many household name comedians.
He encourages people to use their own tools to influence, persuade and engage – whether it’s story-telling, presenting or communicating within teams.
Mark McDonagh, Chair of the Birmingham Publicity Association said: “Jack Milner’s funny, insightful and refreshingly interactive masterclasses, help organisations take what can be dry, technical information and render it clear, memorable and engaging – and so is a must for our members to come to.
“Last year we held a number of training sessions for members, and they proved to be popular as the places were snapped up within days of us releasing them. We have all found ourselves having to present via conference call and video and it’s not the easiest of experiences, so this should really help us all in getting the best out of our team, client and ourselves.”
The event will be held on Thursday, 20th February at Gleeson Recruitment Group on Newhall Street from 9am until 1pm.
With just 20 spaces up for grabs, tickets will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, and must be pre-registered through the BPA website. Only two people per company are also asked to attend the course, so as many businesses in the city can benefit. There will also be a charge for any non-attendance and cancellations can only be made up to 48 hours before the event.
The Birmingham Publicity Association aims to unite those working in the creative, media and marketing industries across the West Midlands and is a great way to network and have fun at the same time.
The BPA has existed since the 1930s, supporting the media and creative industries in the region, while raising money for key charities that its members wish to support. Its members include global organisations to sole traders, graduate trainees right up to CEOs and MDs, media owners and agencies, advertising and marketing agencies, digital agencies, PR agencies and freelancers.
