A bumper crop of comms resources
A bumper crop of comms resources
Where can you read articles on introducing social media within an organisation, rolling out new values, working as a freelancer, using storytelling to inspire employees and demonstrating gravitas in internal comms?
The answer is right here, on this page. Over the three and half years I’ve had my blog for, I’ve written hundreds of articles and invited numerous guests to share their knowledge and experiences too.
My blog stats show me how people found my website and the phrases they searched for. I always find it fascinating to see how people came to be on this page, and what they were looking for, and use this information to ensure the areas I cover match what you’re interested in.
I have covered numerous topics under the broad umbrella that is internal comms – from change to employee engagement, career advice to strategy and social media to events.
This week marks 13 years since I entered the world of work, as I joined the newsdesk of my local newspaper as a trainee journalist the week before my 19th birthday. Over the years I’ve benefitted from reading thoughts from other professional communicators and today I thought I’d return that favour.
So I’m looking back at some of my favourite articles from my blog and have grouped posts together based on what people are searching my site for. I hope you find it useful and do contact me if you have a suggestion for a guest article you’d like to write or read in the future. I tag my articles with keywords, so do refer to the tag cloud on the right hand side of this page and use the search function at the top too to find even more articles.
By far the most popular article on my blog was the internal communications ‘what I do’ meme (pictured) I created in February this year at 3am when wracked with pregnancy insomnia! I keep finding it in various places online and it really seemed to capture people’s imaginations.
