Event Description: 

Less Chaos. Less Noise. Communications Workshop

One-day onsite workshop based on proven principles from the book Less Chaos. Less Noise.

How do you break through the chaos and the noise to reach people who are already bombarded, stressed out, and overloaded with the pressures of life? This workshop shares simple strategies that demonstrate it’s easier than you think.

It’s for any pastor, communications director, ministry leader, or volunteer looking for ways to "get their message out" to where their audience connects–online or off.

  • Identify bad habits and conventional marketing mistakes that sabotage personal and organizational effectiveness.
  • Discover easy-to-remember, best-practices you can carry and use immediately for early success.
  • Learn ways to move out of the frenzied and reactive mode of overwhelming demands and build a proactive framework that prioritizes the right things at the right time.
  • Improve insight to lead internal change towards a clear and unified shared win.
  • Overcome communications barriers with your members and your community by learning to connect with hearts and minds, rather than broadcast to the masses.
  • Avoid the frustration of multi-audience messaging by identifying key channels for each group and learning the language that matters to them.
  • Bust through the limits of a small budget with free strategies that are essential for effective communications.

Effective communication is less about sending the right message and more about releasing the right response. Do you know the difference?
