Part 1: How to Link Your Communication to Organizational Strategyand Measure Its Impact - Sinickas Communications, Inc.
Angela Sinickas, CEO | Sinickas Communications, Inc.
It’s hard to connect our work with our organization’s desired results unless we plan our communication strategies from the beginning to help deliver those results. This workshop will give you an easy-to-follow, step-by-step process to connect communication to business goals—and then prove the value of the communication.
Specifically, in this session, you will learn the difference between communicating about an organizational strategy and communicating in a way that actually fulfills the strategy—sometimes without even mentioning the strategy itself.
You will also be provided with a step-by-step process for engaging your executive management in communication planning in a way that feels like other, logical business processes they are comfortable with.
Part II can be found in the conference OneDrive folder along with worksheets referenced.

Adding Value Through Supporting Leadership Communication - Cropley Communication
Adrian Cropley, CEO | Cropley Communications
Measuring the effects of communication is a sure-fire way of demonstrating to leaders that they are making a difference with their teams and a way to elevate you and the insight your bring to your organisation. The more measures we can collect and give to them, the more they will feel in control of what they are doing and the more they will buy into communication as one of their roles instead of someone else's responsibility. Measuring the effect of leader communication is not easy—finding the ‘hard’ measure for a ‘soft’ skill can be tricky. The focus should be ‘outcome' as a result of the communication, be it a change in knowledge, attitude or behaviour. It is crucial that we don't just rely on the employee opinion survey or 360-degree feedback tools, these are only one part of the measurement. Measuring what has changed is vital because it allows managers to see a tangible result—that employees are doing something differently as a result of their communication efforts.
This session will explore four things you can ‘give' leaders and executives, that not only supports them to be more effective at communication but will build your value as communication professionals, including how to effectively:
