Benefits of using the ECS Systems

PR professionals in the public sector often come from a print journalism background or via professional PR qualifications. Although they have confidence and knowledge of the print media both regionally and nationally and the trade press they may need to know more about the broadcast media

Purchasing the two training programmes How to deal with the media: Print and How to deal with the media: TV will allow PR professionals to skill themselves with that knowledge and pass it on to others who need training. They will be able to save costs and dispense with expensive training agencies.

Writing for Web Sites is a new skill that many in the workplace have to learn. Purchasing the ECS training programme within organisations will allow PR professionals to teach others how to use the best production values to keep their site updated.

The ECS Skillnet Complaints Training programmes allow organisations to train staff how to handle complaints and provide the best customer care possible. A glance through will impart commonsense techniques to staff of all grades who may be busy and unable to attend official courses.

The Public Speaking presentation allows PR professionals to quickly impart to others what they should do and say when teaching others these skills.

Parliamentary Training programmes again are aimed at PR professionals who want to enhance their public affairs work and teach others in their organisation how to go about it within set rules and guidelines.

Each presentation ends with a role play exercise "What would you do?" to enable you to test yourself on what you have learnt.
