Workshops

We want impact organisations to get as much attention as possible, which is why we offer free lunchtime workshops to help comms professionals up their game. In one whirlwind hour, we’ll take you through the most valuable things we’ve learnt in our 10 years of communicating about impact.

We can also organise a bespoke workshop for you and your team to tackle whatever you’re working on.

We offer three different workshops, each one focusing on a different aspect of creating impactful comms:
 
Remote Production: for organisations wanting to learn how to produce consistently high quality content remotely and in multiple countries. We’ll show you how we find inspiring and unique stories on different continents, discussing the common pitfalls involved in remote production and how Makmende overcomes them.
 
Impactful Comms: for organisations struggling to use communications to deepen their impact, we discuss how to turn programmatic objectives into comms objectives and engage audiences meaningfully – comms that have an impact, rather than just talk about it.
 
Strategy: for organisations that can’t quite figure out how to position themselves or their projects. In this workshop, we show you how to reach your audience with the right message, at the right time and in the right place. Our simple framework for honing in on a sharp strategic proposition is easy to replicate and endlessly useful when thinking through how to communicate about yourselves and your work.
 
Aside from being a handy primer on the foundations of good storytelling, these sessions are a great way to connect with other impact comms professionals, sharing problems and solutions while building a community around impact.
