New Course!

A new single-day course (or morning/afternoon if you wish to select two of the four modules) is available from Ultonia Communications after successful trials!

The UK is changing dramatically. This short course is the essential guide to understanding how devolution works, how you can negotiate it to best advantage, and how we can reasonably predict how this is likely to change in the next few years.

Where are the decisions which affect you made?

Find out how to predict where decisions are made and, more importantly influenced, both now and in future.

How does the UK differ from elsewhere?

Learn the key areas where local decision making differs in the UK from elsewhere – both politically and legally.

How does public finance restrict decision making?

Become informed about how the UK’s public finances work, how this differs from business/household budgeting, and the key differences between public spending at UK and devolved level.

What is the future?

Recognise which aspects of the public debate on the future of the UK are for political show, and which aspects are real.

Courses on Advocacy Skills already delivered to or via:
• Chartered Institute for Public Finance Accountants;
• Government Knowledge;
• NI Council for Voluntary Action;
• Parkinson’s UK;
• Queen’s University, Belfast;
• Stratagem NI.

Morning session: £395
Full day: £595

You can’t find the right answers if you don’t ask the right questions – this short course will ensure you ask the right questions and gain a real influence on public decision making!

Now you can!

What we do is simple – we provide a full 24/7 press office facility, giving your business an experienced, professional approach to relating to the media and key professional bodies. We are always on-call, and always available to shape your message.
