Lucy Gardner, Crisis Communication Diploma

Online learning was not an obvious fit for me.

I find it hard to absorb and retain information if I haven’t been able to discuss it with others and bounce ideas and opinions around so I was concerned that I could feel isolated during this course. My teacher, however, had clear on-the-ground experience of crisis comms within big organisations and she encouraged us to discuss live events that we could adapt our learnings to, and also to communicate with each other outside of the sessions as a group. She was really engaging and inspiring.  The one-day workshop towards the last quarter of the course was absolutely brilliant – I think we all left there buzzing to get writing our assignment.

Being surrounded by likeminded people, coming from different industries but all working towards the same goal goes a long way, whether virtually or in real life. My negativity towards online learning was misguided. I can’t wait to do more.
