Institutional Vs Project communication
Communicating a project in a clear and comprehensive way is not an easy task by itself and it may get even more complicated if project communication must be combined with the already-existing institutional communication of your organisation.
Our expert trainers will take you into a journey throughout the main digital tools and techniques to increase the reach of your messages, targeting audiences and subgroups.
The communication of EU – funded projects must follow strict rules and fullfill a long series of requirements. Failing to cope with them may lead to the non-reimbursement of the material produced or to the withdrawal of the funding already received.
We can guide you through this complex system of visibility criteria, according to the specific programme funding your project and always with ALDA+’s famous tailor-made approach!
Social media management
Engaging stakeholders is simply a must to secure the success of your activities. If properly used, social media channels make the difference and significantly help you reaching your strategic organisational goals, enhance marketing results, promote behavioral changes and more.
A crucial element? Choosing the most appropriate channel to maximize results and mastering the algorithms which regulate the whole system!
What do you know about the “hero’s journey”? This is the famous pattern elaborated by J. Campbell, thanks to which narrations of any kind become capable to stir the souls of listeners.
Thus, storytelling is the ability to give a soul to your product, whether this is an object, an activity, or an idea. Our experts will let you enter the magic world of storytelling, able to help your business more than any other tool!
“I work in a very small association where job roles are not well defined: everyone does everything! For us, following all project phases is very complicated: ALDA+ and its service dedicated to the communication and dissemination of project results has made everything easier.” – E.
