Course Overview

Corporate communication involves managing and orchestrating all internal and external communications aimed at creating a favourable reputation, image, and brand identity of the organization. Mastery in corporate communications involves being effective at creating and delivering the messages that need to be issued by the corporate organization, body, or institute to its audiences, such as employees, media, channel partners and the general public. Transmitting communication to all stakeholders with cogency and credibility, using the appropriate media, is also a part of masterful corporate communication.
