How Do You Develop Strategic Communications?

Monday 15th January

In modern business, where reputation helps drive success, the term “Strategic Communications” has become the cornerstone of effective corporate engagement. But looking beyond the jargon, what does it actually mean to develop strategic communications?

What exactly is strategic communications:

Simply put, strategic communications means the deliberate and thoughtful management of information to achieve specific goals. It’s about crafting a narrative, building connections, and engaging with stakeholders in a way that aligns with the objectives of a company or organisation.

What does strategic communications work involve:

In the world of strategic communications, specialists play a pivotal role in defining, crafting, and disseminating the stories that organisations want to tell. From internal communications with staff to external engagement with stakeholders, investors, regulators, and the wider public, strategic communicators navigate the diverse landscape of stakeholders, an area in which Pagefield is expert.

How is this developed:

Strategic communications work spans several activities, including:

  • Defining narratives

  • Managing media relations
  • Using a range of communication channels to reach target audiences

It’s a comprehensive programme that requires a deep understanding of the organisation, its world and its goals.
