Sessions to recast or update your Communication Plan
Get a jump start on this process through simple and efficient facilitated, half-day planning sessions.
- You pick a date when your team can meet (in-person or virtually) to assess and update your plan together.
- We facilitate so you and your team can work together to identify where you’ve been, critical business needs moving forward, and what your function could and should focus on for the future.

- Following the session, we’ll codify your team’s work on paper so any loose ends can be quickly tied and your plan ready to execute.
