We believe that every employee can play a part in building an organisation’s reputation and profile. Black Vanilla helps CEOs become effective spokespeople, staff become social media savvy and HR teams improve their internal communications tools.


Black Vanilla shares its communications expertise through training and capacity-building workshops. We believe that by giving organisations the right tools and training they can increase their in-house communications capacity and make a bigger impact on their customers and stakeholders.


We have a number of off-the-shelf courses that we offer in-house for clients or run as public workshops. All of our training options can be adapted to an organisation’s specific needs, and we can also develop bespoke training solutions.


We start by understanding the unique needs of each client and advise on the best approach to building skills. We match all of our training with reference manuals and tools such as social media planning calendars or strategy templates. Our training options include:


  • Media training for corporate spokespeople 
  • LinkedIn training and lunchtime refresher courses
  • B2C social media training including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Social media strategy and content planning workshops
  • Social media and cybersecurity awareness training
  • Copywriting for online audiences
  • Crisis management training and simulation exercises
