2022 was a great year for Panda Communications – and I’m really grateful to all my clients for helping me build up the company over the past five years.
Last year ended with some lovely news… that I had won a European Enterprise Award 2022 for “Best Strategic Communications Counsellor”. Well, I’ll happily take it 😊, but as someone once said: “Flattery is all right so long as you don’t inhale.”
In any event, it has all been fabulous fun and I’m really looking forward to 2023.
In today’s hyper-communicative world, great communication skills are no longer just a ‘nice-to-have’ for an organisation, or its people - it is essential to success.
Panda Communications is an ethical independent communications agency offering creative and strategic communications counsel for corporations and non-profits; empowering communications training for professionals and young adults; and a wide range of editorial services.
I give strategic counsel to organisations, large and small, based on decades of experience as a senior communications expert, business leader and entrepreneur.
As a highly experienced trainer, I also offer a range of training courses and individual coaching sessions to improve communications and business skills, often building on techniques used by actors on stage. Courses include media training, messaging, storytelling, crisis management, on-camera techniques, digital communications and stakeholder engagement.
Finally, as a former journalist working at the highest levels in media, I provide a wide range of English-language editorial services.
Anyone who has worked with me, or who has been trained by me, knows exactly why! Panda is my nickname.
How I became ‘The Panda’ is a story I’ll happily tell you in training sessions because it highlights several important communications techniques and principles.
Would you like to hear more? Please get in touch (below) and I’d be delighted to tell you the tale.
NEWS UPDATE: 18 May 2021
I launched Panda Communications to help ethical and purpose-driven organisations, large and small, communicate their mission to the wider world. That’s why I’m delighted to announce a new partnership with RISE, which is led by friend and former colleague Katarina Wallin Bureau.
RISE works with leaders and organisations to put purpose and sustainability at the heart of their strategy and stakeholder engagement, in particular helping them align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. RISE helps them put purpose-driven strategies in place, as well as developing creative engagement campaigns to bring them to life.
RISE's mission and that of Panda Communications could not be closer. I’m totally delighted to be working together to help our respective clients.
