Communications Director

Automotive Sector

55 top managers and leadership middle management have been trained in communication skills. Results were immediate, we now spend more time focusing on our core mission with a better output in our communication

CEO

Telecom Sector

As CEO we are well versed in all the economic aspects of restructuring, but we have to admit that in terms of communication we are not always equipped to carry it out with the desired impact. 

Thanks to Square Circle’s approach, we learn to develop our messages according to the audiences in front of us. This is an interesting exercise in many ways, as we have to ‘sell’ the restructuring not only to the staff and their representatives but often also to the management of the group to which we belong.

Through Square Circle’s media training, I also discovered a world I didn’t know. In just a few hours I learned to master it through an extremely exciting training course. Its aim is to teach you how to deliver your key messages whatever the journalist’s question.   

CEO

Industrial Sector

20 managers trained for a major restructuring  “We have learned to convince many employees to embrace the changes. Your training is top class.” 

CEO

Pharmaceutical Group, Europe

25 Plant Managers have been trained by Square Circle with the aim to improve their communication skills. So far, it is the only training we’ve had where all the participants were very positive, even enthusiastic about your methodology and the results obtained in a very short time

CEO

Automotive Sector, Europe

Thanks to the professional guidance and pleasant cooperation, we were very well prepared to announce our intention to restructure.  In such a process it is always very important that everyone is aligned on what needs to be done, how and when.  Planning is crucial. 

In addition, it was also very reassuring to be prepared for attention from the press by means of media training for those who might need to go on camera.
