Triple C workshops

Triple C is a series of quarterly workshops where communicators from both UBC campuses come together to learn from one another, strengthen communication skills and build relationships.

Triple C started simply as coffee, cookies and conversation and is now officially about building capacity, community and consistency. We try to keep it informal, and tailored to what UBC communicators tell us they want to see, hear and discuss. Some sessions lend themselves to small, intimate discussions between specific groups of communicators, others to a broader audience.

Either way, we hope you’ll walk away with tips, tricks and answers to your questions. We want you to meet some of your fellow communicators, and feel supported in your communications work.

Next workshop

Date & time: Thursday, Dec. 8 | 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Topic: Getting The Most Out of Asana

What to expect: Workplaces usually adopt the project/task management tool Asana to solve one specific problem. For example, your unit may use it as a content calendar. However, Asana is flexible enough to be used for a variety of purposes—some of which may have never even occurred to you.

For this session, we’ve invited several UBC communicators to demonstrate how their units use Asana for:

  • content planning
  • onboarding and offboarding staff
  • strategic plan execution
  • requests and ticketing

We’ll also provide a way for UBC communicators to connect with each other ‘offline’ and pick each other’s brains about unique ways to use Asana.

Intended takeaways: You will learn new applications for Asana and see how other teams have implemented them. You will hear what our presenters consider fundamental best practices for using Asana in general.  You’ll find out who uses Asana for what, and how to contact them if you want to do the same. If you’re new to Asana, we’ll advise on first steps for potentially bringing it into your unit at UBC.

We hope to see you there.
