Recent stuff

Here are some of the things we’ve been up to recently…

Managed the communications around the rollout of a global SharePoint platform
We worked as part of the programme team for this global organisation to help them roll out a new collaboration platform based on SharePoint 2010.  Boy, did we learn a lot about SharePoint on this one!

Held a communicating change workshop for a major pharma company in Geneva
We facilitated an interactive workshop for a global group of communications professionals to help upskill them for major change ahead.

Provided journalistic services to provide weekly articles for a major digital marketing portal
Our writers were responsible for finding, researching, writing and publishing stories of good practice from around the world to help our client build capability and community.  This is what we love to do – business journalism.

Helped a blue–chip client through a significant period of change and reorganisation
Fourth Corner worked alongside the programme team over a two-year period to ensure communications were proactive, coordinated and consistent through a major period of change.   We have extensive experience in communicating change.  It’s also our most popular training course.

Devised and ran tailored training workshops for managers
We ran workshops with line managers all over the UK to help them become better communicators at this financial service giant. In many ways, these workshops bring to life the messages in our book, How to be a Better Communicator.

Produced a series of 20 online training modules to help raise communication skills
This series of easy-to-read skills modules ranged from ‘how to write an elevator speech’ through to ‘how to have better team meetings’.   They look great too.

Ran a campaign to raise awareness of a client’s pioneering roll out of mobile technology to field reps
We used creative design, podcasting and great writing to share the successes of this success story.

Helped a global IS/IT function to articulate its complex operating model through a simple online tool
A complex operating model, hundreds of formal processes and thousands of interactions.  Our job was to make it look simple and engaging!

Developed a tailored version of the Fourth Corner Internal Communications Healthcheck for Europe’s biggest employer, the NHS
The assessment tool includes a toolkit of practical help and advice to help NHS communicators improve their knowledge and skills across the full range of internal communication activities. The NHS Internal Communications Healthcheck has been rolled out across the UK as a national online benchmarking and development tool on the Department of Health intranet.

Helped a major global organisation to embed a culture of innovation and creativity
Fourth Corner worked with the company’s innovation team to create and execute a highly creative communications strategy to raise the profile of innovation and encourage innovative practice.

Devised and organised an interactive event to launch a new organisation after a period of change
The successful event included practical round–table exercises to involve staff in the development of a set of values and behaviours. More than 90% of staff rated the event as Excellent or Good.

Produced a series of entertaining and informative podcasts for a major client
The popular programmes contain interviews and case studies from staff and external experts around the world.
