Services for the Academic and public sector

Douglas Brown PR

Helping the public and academic sectors connect

Douglas Brown PR offers a range of training workshops designed for academics and staff in the public sector.


Based on Douglas Brown's experience working with academics over the years and his knowledge of the public sector gained in the NHS and from working alongside colleagues in public bodies these courses aren't just theory and powerpoint, they are practical and down to earth with plenty of hands on activity designed around your needs and their subject areas.


All are designed to be delivered in house for your staff, developing their ability to act as ambassadors for your organisation whilst relieving your reliance on expensive external suppliers.  


As well as the packages below bespoke courses or individual coaching sessions can also be designed and delivered and discounts can be negotiated for purchase of multiple workshops.


All prices shown are per day, not per delegate, and include all support materials. They also include all my travel costs and VAT is not charged. Please refer to my terms of business before making a booking for a workshop.
