Overview

Governments increasingly use communications as a tool for policy delivery by influencing citizen behaviour. But while the world in which we operate has changed, often the structures we use have not. So how should we organise public communications?  What are the skills needed to consistently deliver efficient, effective public communications and impact trust in government?

At our Government & Public Sector Practice event, former Deputy Director of UK Government Communications Sean Larkins shared his experience in creating an upgrade to the Government’s approach to communications. He explored cultural drivers for change, capability and structural updates leveraged in the UK, as well as views on what will be required of Government Communicators as we move toward 2020.
