Communicating risk for public sector and charities webinar

Join University of Essex for 



24th June 2020 at 10.30 a.m. 


The global COVID-19 pandemic is forcing leaders, the public sector, businesses and charities across the world to make difficult decisions that have both short term and long term implications. Each decision needs to be communicated in a clear and transparent way to convey both information, a call for action but are also an opportunity to build trust and engagement with key audiences.

What can we learn from the data behind communication and its influence on behaviour change? How can leaders use best practice to improve the messages they give during critical times?

In the face of a pandemic, what can leaders learn to communicate risk more effectively? We share research-driven solutions drawing upon findings.

Join University of Essex for a webinar that brings data to life, looking at the way organisations communicate risk using data to the public.
