Communications Read More
An ability to communicate expertly is undoubtedly the most precious skill anyone can possess. Communication is what connects you and your people to others in the team, the department, the organisation, and the outside world. If communication is the lifeblood of your organisation, then your message is the DNA.
We can advise you on a wide range of topics which will help you to get the right message across. We’ll help you understand and improve your external and internal communications activities and processes – from planning a strategy to analysing your audience. We can show you how to cope with the specific challenges of team communication, running effective meetings, giving constructive feedback and resolving conflict peacefully.
Print and broadcast media
With decades of experience in these media sectors, we can skilfully guide organisations and individuals to cope with reputational management and enhancement as well as preparation for crisis communication situations. Having people who know the media from the inside on hand to advise you is a key aspect in preventing an internal corporate error from developing into a blunder attracting national headlines.
Align can help you to maximise your potential media opportunities. We can advise and guide you on how to manage effective communications in situations of employment conflict or unfavourable third-party commentary. Being prepared is at least half the recovery process when it comes to restoring reputation and employment branding. If you fear that you might find yourself in front of a camera or studio microphone feeling vulnerable and unprepared for probing interviews, why not call us now?
All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.
