Our free masterclasses are designed to improve the way you communicate about people who migrate and the issues they face — and they can help you to feel confident when doing so.

Maybe your phone can ring non-stop with requests from journalists. Perhaps you’re not sure how to respond to difficult questions, or a crisis situation. Or you just want to improve the way you reach people through social media and with your website. It might be that you feel ready to share your own story with the media but don’t know where to start. Our training courses cover all these topic areas and more.

“I would recommend IMIX training to others, especially if they’re planning to join any campaign or they’re going to share the story with public media, radio, television (or) podcasts. For me, it was an eye-opener.”

Case Study – Doctors of the world training

Back in July 2023, Doctors of the World approached IMIX to lend a hand in boosting their National Health Advisors’ (NHAs) communication skills. These experts-by-experience were responsible for training migrant groups on healthcare and conducting Safe Surgery sessions in GP practices. However, they needed more confidence in public speaking, whether in-person or online. 

IMIX organised a three-day training program tailored to the NHAs’ needs. The program covered public speaking, media engagement, filmmaking for social media, and train-the-trainer techniques.

Thanks to the training program, NHAs are now equipped with newfound communication skills. They’ve gained confidence in delivering training sessions with impact, engaging with diverse audiences, and spearheading advocacy efforts through various media channels. They’ve even learned to create video content using the power of storytelling through visual mediums.
