Past Webinars

Becoming More Than An Accidental Manager

Date: May 2024

Are you an accidental manager?

It's a familiar scenario. You perform well and through your technical ability are promoted through the ranks. Now you have to manage other people, despite not having had any formal leadership or management training.

In this webinar, we look at how to recognise and overcome the challenges of the accidental manager.

How to lead and manage your team during a crisis

Date: Feb 2024

You’ve got your comms strategy in place. You know who your spokespeople will be. And you’ve tested your plan.

But have you thought about how to manage yourself and lead your team through a crisis?

Our BCF Group coaches Dan Boniface and Laura Bridgeman will be joined by Helen Robinson-Gordon, Head of News and Media Relations at the British Medical Association, to talk through her real world experiences of managing a team through turbulent times.

How can you conquer imposter syndrome?

Date: May 2023

Do you find it difficult to share your thoughts and opinion in meetings? Do you feel uncomfortable sharing your comms expertise with senior leaders?

Maybe you feel you are overachieving and are waiting to be found out.

Feelings like this are not unusual, but how do you overcome them, stop them from becoming persistent and prevent them from holding you back?

We explored it all with Dan and Kirsty, our personal development coaches from The BCF Group.

Managing the mental well-being of your comms and media team

How can you improve your resilience?

Date: Aug 2022

Working in comms is tough.

Comms teams are increasingly asked to do more with less. You may be dealing with sensitive and emotionally draining subjects.

It can be hard to ever switch off.

Building resilience and being resilient have never been more vital.

But what does it mean? And how do you do it?


Date: Jun 2022

The ability to manage upwards is not a skill you are likely to find on a job advert. But it is one of the most important skills you can possess, particularly for comms professionals.

Why? Well, because your role involves influencing and persuading those at the top of the organisation.

BCF Coach, Kirsty Waite helps you develop your toolkit so you can do it well, and with confidence.

Effective time management

Date: May 2022

We cannot change time or give you more of it. But we can help you to manage it more effectively.

Andrea Booth will be joined by BCF Coach, Kirsty Waite in this masterclass session to help you develop your time-management skills.

How you can help your team, colleagues and spokespeople with basic coaching skills

Date: Feb 2022

The new way of working has reduced meaningful access to leaders, managers, colleagues and teams.

This can make it difficult to communicate effectively. Coaching techniques can help you overcome these challenges.
