Virtual training

Content skills course

Training for the WFH era

Our Content Skills training course is now available as four lunchtime virtual sessions for the remote working era.

It is derived from the practices of the world’s best publishers to give you and your team the skills needed to produce stand-out content that engages with audiences – even while working from home.

You’ll come out with processes, checklists and new skills, along with the confidence of knowing that your content delivers.

What will I have learnt by the end?

The sessions will be led by two top journalists turned content editors who between them have clocked up 35 years at the BBC and Telegraph, along with more than a decade working for blue-chip clients including Apple, Netflix, PwC, BT and Pirelli. Over four lunchtime sessions, you and your team will discover and explore:

  1. The processes that will help you get your content plan budgeted, approved by stakeholders and off the ground
  2. How to generate powerful ideas and deliver them to have maximum impact for your audience
  3. The checklist that will guarantee your content is spot on, every time
  4. The editorial tricks, tips and skills that every top editor knows.

Our virtual courses are designed to run in a lunchtime slot from Monday to Thursday, on Zoom or any other platform. They are aimed at groups of four people and can be tailored to your company. Costs start from £250 a session.
