You can’t move in the UK at the moment without seeing something related to the Olympics and the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) is offering Internal Comms pros the chance to hear from a winning speaker.

Double gold medal-winning Olympian, Steve Williams, is due to speak at the Institute’s annual conference in May.  The rower, who took gold as part of the coxless fours teams in Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008, now works as an inspirational speaker and runs team development workshops.

The Olympics will be taking place in London just a few weeks after the IoIC event. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Preparing for Peak Performance’. The IoIC says that as well as reflecting the Olympic theme in this special year, its conference will provide Internal Communication practitioners with valuable insights, tips and case studies to get them in the best professional shape to take advantage of the up wave when the business cycle turns again. That can’t be a bad thing!

Over the next few months the programme will be published and it promises to be packed with “informed and engaging presenters delivering highly relevant sessions and all the benefits of networking with your internal communication peers”.

It’s happening at the Marriott, Forest of Arden, near Birmingham, from Wednesday May 23 – Friday May 25. If you would like to make a booking, or need further details of the event, please contact
