Do you want to improve your company’s brand image to grow faster? Your company is expanding internationally but you lack a communication director in these countries? You are currently facing a crisis situation and need to regain control over your image? You are about to change leagues and move into the world of leaders? You need the support of a professional to help your Communication Department in lack of resources or temporary overload to put communication means in front of your ambitions?
SKILLS offers the experience of its international DirCom’s and a combination of expertise to support your company and ensure its optimal visibility.
Whatever the image challenge encountered by the company, we combine experience and rigor to analyse your needs and advise a concrete and adapted action plan.
Skills Communication’s Communication Directors all have worked for more than 20 years in large groups and have the experience of multiple clienteles (institutional, distribution, retail); they have faced all communication situations and know how to react with maturity and practicality.
A company may need the temporary support of a Communication Director in many occasions but it does not necessarily know the existence of this service and its adequacy with its needs.
The SKILLS DirCom’s can advise and supervise the action of the communication teams in place and help to structure a team, replace a manager, make a leader emerge and install good practices (training, organization, process, recruitment, search for external experts…).
Having led international teams and implemented communication strategies covering many countries and using all possible communication vectors, they bring their creativity and expertise while being project architects and team coordinators.
The seconded DirCom intervenes partly on site at the client’s office to take the brief, support and coordinate local teams if necessary. Remotely, he will mobilise and coordinate the necessary external experts and set up the organisation and processes required by the mission.
Depending on the mission assigned to the seconded DirCom, it will be budgeted either on a time spent basis or on a fixed price basis. The costs of any external experts that may be required to complete the assignment will be added.
The seconded DirCom can be the client’s representative for any communication issue.
The seconded DirCom can also be in charge of developing the client’s speaking opportunities, in order to increase the influence of its brand:
The seconded DirCom will have to ensure regular updates and follow the performance of the client’s digital eco-system:

SKILLS DirComs can advise and supervise existing communications teams and help to structure action, replace a manager, identify a leader and install best practices (training, organisation, processes, budgets, recruitment, selection of external experts, etc.).
Having managed international teams and implemented communication strategies covering many countries and using all possible communication tools, they bring their creativity and expertise to stand as project architects and team coordinators.
Depending on the assignment entrusted to the seconded DirCom, the cost will be calculated either on the basis of time spent or on a per-mission basis.
The daily rate varies depending on whether the assignment is strategic (assisting senior executives, analysing the competition, positioning the company's image, etc.), editorial (writing and producing corporate or press communications material, for example), team management orientated (training, structuring, preparing processes, etc.) or operational (managing an event, running an advertising campaign, a customer barometer, etc.).
The costs of any external experts required to complete the assignment will also be added.
