Event description: 

The Icon Care of Collections Group is pleased to announce an online training course focussing on influence for collection care. This course will suit those working in the museum sector who have to try to communicate policies such as collection care, to audiences that may need to be won over. The course will be of use to professionals who want to change the way they are heard, with a view to being more effective communicators.

The training will occur over two days and will combine pre reading, group work, lectures and activities to help participants: understand the components of influence; plan influence campaigns; deconstruct their own messaging and identify if there are ways to improve; examine issues of personality and gender and discuss any impact. The training will end with action planning leaving delegates with a toolkit of actions to go back out and try to make themselves heard.

This training will enable delegates to:

  • Understand why their influence techniques may not be working
  • Deconstruct influence situations to explain frustrating encounters
  • Plan ways to improve influence
  • Adapt communication modes to increase likelihood of successful influence

Professor Jane Henderson will be leading the course. Tickets are priced at £15 for Icon members.
