Amazon to speak at CharityComms storytelling seminar
Comms teams across all sectors are talking more these days about narrative, and less about USPs and key messages.
Charities have always been good at telling stories about people they help, to engage supporters and influence policy-makers. In our sectors storytelling isn't new, but the media has become more fragmented and people now want to be part of a conversation rather than a passive recipient of information. The way we develop and tell our stories needs to keep pace.
Of course some stories and some storytellers are better than others. What is it that makes a story powerful? How do you get it right? How can storytelling help you achieve your organisational goals?
These questions and many others will be addressed at a CharityComms seminar on 22 January in London. Amazon is supporting this event, to help charities communicate as effectively as possible and increase their impact.
Amazon's Kirsty Kitchen will be speaking about why storytelling is important and how you can get it right. Book your place now.
Amazon launches new guides
We are starting a new series of guides, adding to our existing resources for people working in comms.
The first is about press releases. The traditional news release continues to have value, but only if it has something to say and is well written. People often underestimate how much work goes into getting them right. Our tips will help!
We have two more guides coming in the run-up to Christmas - one on generating local media coverage and one on evaluating a PR campaign. If you'd like to see other topics covered, please get in touch.
