NEW SOCIAL MEDIA COURSES NOW AVAILABLE
We’ve completely revamped our social media courses to make them more practical and platform-focused.
In addition to new trainings on using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn professionally, we’ve rejigged our popular courses on Mastering Social Media and Drafting a Digital Strategy. And in the run-up to the European Parliament elections we’ve refashioned our Social Media Campaigning coaching to focus on politics and policymaking.
We hope to see you at one of our tailor-made courses soon.
TELLING THE EU’S STORY BETTER
John has been busy putting his storytelling skills to good use in Turkey and the Balkans over the past few months. Together with our social media coach Steffen Thejll-Moller, he has led a series of trainings for the European Commission on how to tell the EU’s story better by focusing on values and emotions as well as data.
So far, John and Steffen have trained project managers in Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia and Turkey. Montenegro, a return journey to Ankara and a wrap-up session in Brussels are planned for later in the Autumn.
The pair have earned rave reviews from the 40+ participants at each workshop. “The trainers were very energetic, positive, open and supportive,” said one. “They worked perfectly as a duo,” said another. “The trainers are real experts in their field.” Not that we’re proud or anything!

SKILL UP THIS AUTUMN
Over the past year we’ve had a lot of enquiries from people looking to join open training courses as opposed to the tailor-made ones we usually provide. So we have decided to lay on 10 media and communication courses in the autumn, which are open to everyone, affordably priced and taught by experienced practitioners.

Jelle Annaars has worn many hats in the communication industry. Originally a copywriter and content marketer, Jelle fell into media training by chance. Asked to fill the shoes of a colleague who ran media trainings for Voice, Jelle never looked back and has hosted that same training session more than ten times since. In March 2016, Jelle was awarded an honourable mention in the Gouden Veer competition, which recognises best-practice in Belgian communication. He has also created copy for BNP Paribas and the European Parliament and was the first Copyblogger Certified Content Marketer in the Benelux. Jelle is excited about the future of a smarter media training industry and wants to help clients understand how they can use social media and blogs to advance their business. When he’s not conducting trainings himself, Jelle often finds himself attending trainings on media training.

The study also finds that the overwhelming majority of reporters prefer to be pitched by email, not phone. No time to read the report? We’ve condensed its main findings for you.
