Notes from the Field: Webinars and Hands-On Spokesperson Trainings

The DG+CO team has been out in the field for a number of recent trainings and presentations.

DG+CO’s recent webinars with The Support Center provided professional development to nonprofit staffs on the following topics:

Webinar 1: Our Stories, Ourselves

How to tell stories that achieve your organizational goals

Webinar 2: Social Media Brain Food

How to avoid “empty calories” in your social media diet

Webinar 3: Growing Your Resource Garden

How to work smarter when your only resources are human resources

Webinar 4: Overcoming “Event-Phobia”

How to stop worrying and learn to love your events

Participants came away with new insights and tangible tools to take back to their teams (like these 20 Free Tech Tools We’re Thankful For). Thanks to all who joined. We’ll keep you posted on the next webinar series!

Wondering how you can become a better speaker? DG+CO can help.

Our highly customized trainings can help everyone become a better speaker, and we can turn some people into stars. We develop both the content for spokespeople and the technical skills required to communicate across multiple platforms – in-person, print, television, radio, and online.
We specialize in practical and interactive trainings before a TV camera, which are designed to increase comfort and effectiveness in media interviews. Recently we’ve conducted trainings for two of our longtime clients:

At the National Organization for Social Security Claimants Representatives’ biannual conference: We traveled to the “Mile High City” to help NOSSCR’s members and advocates deliver a series of messages we tested with the public around the issue of Social Security Disability.

At the Center for Medicare Advocacy’s headquarters: We trained staff in Connecticut to more effectively deliver organizational messages and answer tough questions from reporters – as the organization has seen increased media inquiries in recent years.
