GK’s Training Services

  • Skills Audits

    In order to understand where GK can best offer support, our consultants undertake an audit of the existing skills within your business and identify the skills gaps within existing communications functions. This enables us to offer recommendations for structuring communications departments and delivering an agreed strategy.

    GK can help organisations shape up for the future by developing innovative social media strategies and delivering expert workshops to empower staff to use social media more effectively.
