Public sector social media crisis workshop

Hel and other expert trainers run inspiring workshops and courses: in-house or away-day style sessions, tailor-made for each group of delegates.

We look at good and bad case studies, how to use various tools, and insights and learning on what social media can do for us.

Courses are designed for the unique needs of charities, universities or for those who work in public service: housing associations, social care, local government and not-for-profits.

Popular courses include:

Hel can support your team to develop their communications strategies, help them get better at telling the story of your organisation or join in as an extra resource when they have important projects to complete.
