Training and development

Rostrum hugely values personal development and training within the agency. This is immediately evident in the career trajectories of so many of their team.

In addition to core skills training in media relations, reputation management, social media and more, Rostrum has an extensive budget for helping individuals in bettering both their professional and soft skills. Some examples of personal development sessions Rostrum have recently held are:
