The pressure on communications teams to support business outcomes is rightly  greater than ever. Effective communications teams aren’t about just ‘sending out stuff’, they’re about supporting organisational objectives and delivering against the priorities of an organisation.

Digital in Wales, what would you do?

At the end of this week’s Digital Panel meeting we had a bit of discussion about the best way to be open and transparent in our thinking and progress and how to ensure that we understood the challenges across sectors.

In fact this was my second time ‘in the field’ and despite my dislike of camping and lack of comms background I found myself more than happy to be back amongst it. A change delivery professional […]

Collaborating in a field in Dorset

Collaboration is a key behaviour to get right if an organisation is really going to transform and deliver sustainable change. Without collaboration you work in silos, you keep learning to yourself, you focus solely on your own ideas and you reinforce the behaviour that slows change and drives mistrust.

CommsUnplugged

At Perago-Wales we believe that to go forward you sometimes need to step back. Not in time or out of circulation, just to take stock, rethink and find the focus that allows you to push forward again.
