Comms 360 Review: Consistent Leadership Messaging Across Every Channel

The Problem

There are so many communication channels within organisations it’s difficult to make sure all your communications are on message, aligned to your values, and effective.

The Solution

A Comms 360 review.

We evaluate your most important communication touchpoints and work on making all of them consistent with your message and values.

The last few years have seen crisis after crisis. A Comms 360 Review helps leaders prepare for and handle crises more effectively, minimizing potential damage to the organization’s image and operations.


Develop Your Personal Brand

Reviewing your communication skills will enable you to develop and refine your personal brand, This will help you to establish yourself as a credible and influential figure both within and outside your organization.

What Is A Comms 360 Review?

A Comms 360 Review takes a hard look at all the main communication channels you use and evaluates how well you use them according to 5 main criteria.

Are your messages:

1.  Consistent?

2. Aligned with your organisation’s values?

3. Aligned with your business strategies?

4. Conveying the message you intend?

5. Effective (i.e. producing the result you desire)?


Who Is A 360 Comms Review For?

When you are a leader, very few people are going to tell you your emails suck, or your pep talk was uninspiring, or nobody understands your presentations.

That role is best served by an outsider who is not afraid to tell you what they see and help to implement effective ways to improve your performance. 

A Comms 360 review is for business leaders who understand that continuous improvement in communication skills contributes to their ongoing professional development. It positions you for success in increasingly complex and dynamic business environments.

This kind of deep dive also provides a fresh pair of eyes to look at the challenges you face and gives you a confidential safe space where you can reflect on your leadership role.


What is The Process Like?

Once we have taken the decision to work together, we start with a wide-ranging chat for 60 to 90 minutes. It covers areas like your personal and business life, your experience, your values, your ambitions and, perhaps most importantly, the things that keep you awake at night. Of course, we will also discuss the communication areas you want to focus on reviewing

Based on this you will receive a bespoke action plan to negotiate / sign off on. This plan will include benchmarks, milestones and targets to help keep us on track.

Situations and priorities change so, of course, the plan is not set in stone.

Expect regular iterations along the way.

1. How do I know if your coaching is right for me?

Book a free 15-minute consultation via Zoom to discuss your needs and what you want to achieve.  Then I’ll send you a proposal based on our discussion. If you are happy with the plan, we can start working together.

2. What are the main benefits of doing a Comms 360 Review?

Continuous improvement in communication skills contributes to your ongoing professional development, positioning you for success in increasingly complex, challenging and dynamic business environments.

3. Will you help me to write communications?

While initially I will be happy to take on a ‘script doctor’ role for areas that need a lot of improvement, my aim is to train you as we work together so that, over time, you become more autonomous and need my help less and less.

4. As a leader I feel pressured to appear in videos but I'm too nervous. Can you help me with this?


One of the problems with the fear of doing videos is the perception people have of what a video is. It doesn’t have to be a 25-minute talk on a big stage. It’s possible to make a short, effective video where you only need to do three or four 10-second chunks to camera.

With a few hours’ training and practice you can easily master this format.

5. What if English is not my first language?

I have more than 20 years’ experience as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) and ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) lecturer. I have taught public speaking skills to school children, university students and business people from all around the world so I understand different cultural approaches to public speaking.

About Me

I worked in a wide variety of jobs (including marketing and finance) before moving into the education sector. I started out as an English language teacher but branched out into a wide variety of activities – CV trainer, Cambridge examiner, teacher trainer for major international organisations  such as the British Council, Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press, ghostwriter, speechwriter, blogger, video maker, spoof website builder, education consultant.

But the one thing I always enjoyed the most was helping people to improve their communication and public speaking skills and, as so many of the people I was working with were foreigners, it also led me into the area of intercultural communication.

Which is why I am here – to help you, wherever you are from in the world, whichever language you speak, to communicate more effectively and have a more successful and fulfilling life.
