Gauteng: PRISA Randburg
The Oxford dictionary defines policy as “a course or principle of action adopted or proposed by an organisation or individual.” These principles act as the guiding light that provide direction to organisations and recommend certain behaviours in individuals. Commonly identified with governments and economics, policies also exist in communication. What are some of the common policies, how are they developed? These are some of the pertinent questions that this PRISA workshop is designed to provide answers to.
Skilled public relations officers are in tune with the different communication policies that govern various stakeholders. This informative workshop will ensure that you too learn this valuable skill and can apply it in the ‘real’ world. Having this tool in your communication artillery will help you in your profession. Join us for this interactive, intense workshop and be the best communicator you can be.
Outcomes for this workshop include:
