Why did nobody teach me this stuff?
A Master Class with Russell Davies
If you’re a planner or strategist in an agency you’re probably pretty clever, good at strategic thinking, and able to pick up skills and new ways of working pretty quickly. And a lot of these are easily taught in classic training courses.
But you also need a connected set of soft skills that's hard to buy off the shelf.
You need to be able to present well, and to run a meeting effectively and enjoyably.
You need to be good at ideas - having them, sharing them, protecting them (and killing them).
You also need to keep tuned in to the creative world around you and to know how to manage and develop it.
We normally hope people will just pick this stuff up on their own but, good news! these things can be taught, learned and practised.
We've created two mornings of training which get creative generalists going with all of these things.
What will you learn?
How to structure a presentation to keep it interesting
How to manage attention throughout a meeting
How to keep an effective scrapbook of ideas
How to create an environment that stimulates and manages ideas
How to notice more - ideas, trends, behaviours, opportunities - and how to capture what you've noticed
How to be better at sharing, to write clearly, briefly and well
And where to look next and to keep getting better
You’ll get all of this bundled with a selection of work-hacks and short-cuts that you only learn by paying close attention to the work place for 30 years.
