This audience can be internal to the company, or external. Topics covered will include communication channel selection, persuasive campaigns, engaging an audience on the internet, communicating change to internal and external audiences, organisational use of social media for engagement. Also, the role and function of Human Resource Management and recruitment marketing is analysed. Podcast scripting and production is taught and experienced as a channel of engagement.
