We’ve really missed exhibiting at the NHF Comms Event this year. It’s the first time since 2006 that we haven’t been able to attend, which is a strong testament to how worthwhile we find it.

It’s not just about networking with Marcomms professionals, but also hearing some of the excellent speakers expanding on housing issues and putting them into a larger national perspective. It gives us a profound insight into the issues that you all face everyday. Knowing the challenges that you have to deal with, from the inside gives us the vision we need to tailor media training courses for housing associations, making sure that your spokespeople are well prepared for rigorous media interviews.

Of course we drill down deeper too, liaising with your Communications teams to develop relevant interview scenarios for your executives and senior leaders. We also keep our fingers on the firmly on the pulse, thanks to specialists like Inside Housing and HQN.

But we have missed this year’s NHF Comms Event, the camaraderie, the chance to meet up with old friends over a few drinks, the speeches, Julian Hurst and the staff at Foremarke Exhibitions and the NHF.

Face to face training after lockdown

The good news is that lockdown restrictions are easing and we should soon be back to delivering face to face media training in a London studio or in your own premises. If you are planning a media training programme in the next financial year, now is the time to get in touch.

Let us know what you need, Crisis media Training, Presentation skills or Media Training and we will give you a tailored proposal and advise on the best way to enhance the communication skills of your key spokespeople.
