Delivering Communications to Support Local Outbreaks (COV2)

You need to be prepared. Evidence shows that decisions to announce increased local measures and/or local lockdowns can happen at short notice without warning.

Partnership working is paramount, but who do you need to communicate with, who has primacy and who leads?

This interactive workshop will support organisations in the development of bespoke communication strategies, to support the delivery of local COVID-19 outbreak plans.

Who should attend?

Directors of communication, heads of units/branches within a communications department and emergency planners

In this session participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Build an effective communication strategy to meet operational needs and manage local outbreaks using the OASIS model – Objectives, Audience and Insight, Strategy, Implementation, Scoring and Evaluation


The trainers will help you sense-check your individual strategies to ensure they are fit for purpose to help achieve the desired results.

Duration two and a half hours including 3 x 20-minute breakout sessions
