For content marketing specialists, speaking at events is an opportunity to share our knowledge and overcome those public speaking jitters.
Back in March, we gave each member of Kaizen, who had yet to speak publicly, the opportunity to conduct a Lightning Talk in the Pecha Kucha (PKN) style.
This was a mini-conference where each person could speak on any topic of their choice – work-related or not. Following the PKN-style, we each had 15 slides with every slide timed at 20 seconds each.
So why do we continue to do Kaizen Skooling sessions?
From brands jumping on the ethical bandwagon to understanding our target audience, the team spoke about a number of topics that helped to increase confidence and break down any nervousness.
Not only do we do Kaizen Skooling sessions for confidence benefits, but we also conduct them on a weekly to bi-weekly basis to ensure each person in the agency understands the roles and responsibilities of different team members.
Our agency has grown quite a bit recently. In fact, over the past few months, we’ve brought in 7 new recruits across our 3 main departments; content, production and PR. Growth is an exciting time for any business. At Kaizen, we want to be sure that as we get bigger, a general level of understanding of what we do, why we do it and how we deliver it is known across every team.
Here are a few sessions we’ve conducted so far:
Do you run similar internal training sessions? We’d love to hear how!
We recently hosted our second Digital PR Linkup, where we enjoyed some great lessons from a number of speakers as well as a panel of seasoned journalists. But alongside opportunities to learn and network, we were also delighted to be able to announce the launch of Kaizen’s new tech product, Klipr. Klipr – Automated PR […]

An emarketer report forecast that UK ad spend would surpass £19.5bn in 2019. Even with Brexit uncertainty, it looks likely to exceed that milestone by the end of the year, with over 66% of that to be in digital media. This reflects the scale in which advertisers are investing in digital channels to promote their […]
