EngageWell – recruitment and sketchnoting


                                                                      9am – 4pm, Radisson Blu, Liverpool

Our EngageWell event is going to be a lively day with plenty of action as well as learning!

The morning sketchnoting session is guaranteed to leave you thinking differently about how you engage and communicate your key messages.

Led by our creative and inspirational Karla Rimaitis, with all materials provided, it will leave you with some useful tools for visual blogging and presenting.

In the afternoon we will hear about fantastic comms work which has helped NHS organisations to increase recruitment – with lessons that could be applied to any campaign.

We have included round table time with the speakers to discuss your own ideas and ask about practical tips to get the most impact from a campaign.

And we will be joined by the super creative social media lead at Doncaster Council Nick Fromont, who will share his approach to getting attention on Twitter – if you don’t follow him already I’d recommend it: @NFromont and @MyDoncaster.
