March 3, 2020, Dubai, UAE: Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) today introduced Knowledge+, its communications training academy delivering accredited and bespoke coaching to communications professionals across the MENA region.

Delivered in both English and Arabic, Knowledge+ provides a first-of-its-kind training programme, designed to inspire, equip and nurture professionals with skills needed to succeed in the region.

Drawing on over 90 years international experience and 35 years of experience in the region of supporting organizations, Knowledge+ combines academic knowledge with industry best practice, offering a wide range of courses across six key modules with topics including Creative Campaign Planning, Media Coaching, Maximizing Stakeholder Impact, Effective Employee Communication, Crisis Management and Social Media.

Through an in-depth initial audit process of both the overall function of the communications team and the capabilities of the individuals involved, Knowledge+ effectively provides busy, hard-working teams with strategic insights into their own capacity gaps. Using the diverse range of courses offered, Knowledge+ can then support the organization and its employees, as they begin the process of capacity building based on rapid and effective transfer of skills and knowledge.

“At a time of significant transformation and disruption, there has never been a greater need for engaging and effective communications.
