Working Together Works: How to Stop, Collaborate, and Listen with Colleagues Across Your Organization

Back to Agenda

Looking forward to this session? Share it!

Do you feel like departments and units at your university are working in silos? Is communication stymied between colleagues and your system communications office? It doesn’t have to be this way. Sophie Wolf, Digital Media Manager for Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning – the four-year public university system of the Magnolia State, will break down walls and discuss collaboration from the perspective of someone who has worked as a one-person marketing jack-of-all-trades at a small liberal arts college and now as a higher ed system communications officer. How do news release topics get decided? Why do announcements about personnel matters seem last minute? How can universities more closely align and get our messages out through the system? Get prepared to get connected and energized to advance your work together.

Attendees will walk away from this session:

  • Busting myths we tell ourselves as communications officers.
  • A toolbox to build synergy for content creation and distribution.
  • Strategy examples of building connections and being proactive on a micro and macro level.
  • Collaborative resources to help aid in connectivity and streamline communication.
