Working in Comms in the UK? Here’s a Lineup of Events from TCA You Shouldn’t Miss

As Comms professionals, our career journeys can sometimes get lonely and monotonous. That’s why we usually have this feeling of relief when we meet other professionals who have walked or are walking in our shoes. We can learn from them, be encouraged by them and just have the assurance that we are not alone in this career journey.

It is also the reason why we host in person and virtual events at The Comms Avenue – to provide Comms professionals with the support they need to thrive in their careers. While we’ve done this well within the African continent, we’re delighted to expand our footprint of impact to Europe starting with our lineup of events for African Comms professionals who are based in the United Kingdom (UK).

If you work in Comms in the UK or you are looking to make the transition into the UK Comms industry, here are some events from TCA that you shouldn’t miss!

TCA UK Webinar

We’re starting off with a virtual conversation which will focus on learning how some senior Comms professionals have managed their transition into the UK Comms/ PR industry.

Making the transition to a new country is not always easy, especially within the corporate world. Through this webinar, our goal is that you will gain practical advice and strategies to make your transition into the UK Comms industry smoother.

So here’s our special invitation to join Eduvie Martin, Olugbeminiyi Idown and Phoebe Pappoe on Thursday 23rd May by 1pm BST/ WAT for an engaging conversation on how they successfully transitioned into the UK Comms industry. You can sign up for the webinar here.

Please come with your questions and also tell a friend/ colleague who is based in the UK!
