I am delighted to invite you to join our webinar
, on Wednesday 15 July at 11am (AEST)
The Australian communications, media and marketing landscape is facing structural change accelerated by COVID-19 and the associated economic downturn. There is a significant rise in journalists, communications and marketing professionals moving from permanent roles to freelance and contract work in the short term. However, the longer-term reality for our industry is the ability to build portfolio careers will be a requirement for anyone seeking long terms and sustainable careers.
Demands on communication and marketing departments and newsrooms continue to increase however the ability to service these with a diminished full-time workforce is a challenge for many organisations. Progressive leaders are increasingly realising the benefit of fixed and flexible workforces and the benefit of developing contract arrangements to enable access to the full range of talent in the market.
We welcome two very well-known journalists and communications experts – Tracey Spicer and Ky Chow to share their stories on building diverse portfolio careers, resilience and the skills required for success.
The panel will discuss:
- The current media, marketing and communications landscape and the structural changes associated with an economic downturn
- What it takes to identify and articulate your skills to effectively market and build a portfolio career
- Some of the challenges facing organisations through COVID-19, and the specialised skills they will need to navigate this period
- How progressive leaders are building agile and diverse teams to harness the full range of skills in the market
