Communications workshop (without the boring PowerPoint stuff)
No-Bull Newsroom is a communications workshop set in a TV newsroom. It teaches the art of clear and succinct communication… by lunchtime.
Your teams will leave the workshop with the ability to tell stories in minutes – because with a fast-approaching lunchtime deadline, there’s no time for waffle.
Internal and external communications training, newsroom style
Led by a TV journalist with more than 30 years’ experience at the BBC, the course is unlike any other communications training your staff will have experienced before.
There are no yawn-provoking PowerPoint slides. Not even a glimpse. The workshop is energetic and challenging – and above all, it’s effective.
- Faced with a looming news deadline, your staff will learn how to communicate with swift efficiency.
- It’s all about clear English. No wasted words (and definitely no business jargon).
- Which news stories should make the headlines? They’ll learn to debate and argue their case with clarity.
- … and then breaking news throws everything out of the window.
This course offers more than the buzz of a TV newsroom. It can transform internal and external communication, strengthen team relationships and turbo-charge productivity.
Flexible and versatile workshops (for the easily bored) — delivered online, or face-to-face.
The workshop will be customised to fit your organisation. It could be the quick hit adrenaline of a 60-minute session, a half day or a whole day of training.
Numbers? Between 15 and 25 people work well – although it’s perfectly OK to have larger or smaller groups.Email here
A bit about me
I’m John Young, a TV journalist who worked in regional and national newsrooms at the BBC for more than 30 years – often meeting the strict deadline of the lunchtime news bulletin. I only left in October 2020, so my material and take-aways are bang up to date.
This means that I’m used to communicating clearly, summing up complex ideas in a few sentences, and making decisions … by lunchtime.
I can help your teams do the same. They’ll get more stuff done.
