One of the UK’s leading business management experts will be hosting an exclusive event for the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) at the University of Lincoln.


Professor Colin Coulson-Thomas will share his knowledge on how businesses manage change and corporate communications. The half day seminar will take place on Wednesday 21st March.


The seminar entitled ‘Communicating for Change’ will explore the role of corporate communications in managing and effecting change. CIPR members, executives, senior managers and entrepreneurs will benefit from the seminar.


The talk will be based on the findings from Professor Coulson-Thomas’s research which made his successful book ‘Winning Companies: Winning People, the differing approaches of winners and losers’.


Findings highlight that winning companies communicate and manage change differently to losing companies and this is a major factor in determining the success of a company. The half day seminar will provide practical advice to companies who want to be winners.


Professor Coulson-Thomas said: “Winning companies cope with changing circumstances whilst losing companies struggle and fail. This is down to differences in attitudes and behaviour towards change.”


Professor Coulson-Thomas is the Professor of Direction and Leadership at the University of Lincoln and Fellow of the CIPR. He has helped over 100 companies improve corporate performance and he has spoken at over 200 national and international corporate events.


The seminar will take place at the university’s EMMTEC building, starting at 1.30pm and finishing at 5.00pm. Tickets are £40 + VAT for CIPR members and £50 + VAT for non-members.
