A key branch of Faith Associates work in developing effective communications strategies is to focus on providing relevant training workshops and seminars to faith leaders (Imams, Scholars and Aalimahs) that is catered to developing their non theological skills in areas of both traditional and new age social media.
Having had success with the Mosque and Madrassah Management training programmes, Faith Associates has developed specifically designed workshop programmes for Faith Leaders that look to upskill and instil greater confidence in non-theological areas of development.
Within the context of media, the Faith Associates training programme has been delivered in key localities across the UK and focuses on showing faith leaders the power of social media and how to best utilise it, understand the role traditional print and online media plays in shaping discourses and how to engage with it and practical skills to develop public speaking and press releases.
We have delivered this training programme in key Mosques around the country, including Derby Jamia Mosque, which was attended by a diverse age range of Imams and Mosque Management committees.
Our work with individual religious voices has also yielded positive results. Faith Associates has focussed on facilitating a relationship between Imams and key media outlets in order to promote a positive message of Islam to a wide target audience. The results can be seen here.
Faith Associates continues to offer and deliver effective Media training workshops. For further information or advice relating to communications, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0) 1494 416202.
