Communicating effectively post COVID-19

On 12th October EASPD will host a Communications Network Workshop on Communicating effectively post COVID-19. The workshop will explore how we can maximise the impact of their communication activities post pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed our societies and the way that we communicate with each other. As the measures implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19 are lifted, some of the new communication techniques and tools that were adopted in the pandemic will remain in use. The use of these new technologies, alongside the return to more traditional form of communication, has raised more questions as to how to communicate effectively post COVID-19.

In conjunction with EASPD’s 25th Conference ‘The future is now: Person Centred Technology to empower people and disability services,’ EASPD’s Communications Network will host an in-person workshop on communicating effectively post COVID-19. This workshop will bring together members of EASPD’s Communications Network, to explore how we can maximise the impact of their communication activities post COVID-19.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday 12th October: 13:00-15:30 CET in Brussels.

Possible workshop topics will include:

  • How to retain engagement online.
  • How to balance an increased online presence with staff capacity.
  • The possibility of profiting from online communication/events.
  • How to stand out online.
  • Fundraising online.

The workshop will include a keynote speech and participation of Christophe Ginisty, a public relations expert, digital strategist and social media expert. To read the full programme, click here.
