A conversation for IC pros about Brexit


A conversation for IC pros about Brexit

What do communicators need to know about the UK’s decision to leave the EU?

What should we be communicating, when and what’s the next step?

Rachel MillerThis afternoon Chuck Gose @chuckgose, who is host of the popular internal comms podcast ICology @learnicology and I discussed all things comms, referendums and the US election.

We recorded our conversation as a special edition of his show.

You can hear what we talked about below and online.

Chuck said: “The UK’s vote to leave the EU will have a tremendous impact on the messages companies will be sending to employees. There’s a lot of unknown right now and employees will be looking to their leaders for answers. Internal communicators will have a huge role to play here.

“In this episode, Rachel Miller from All Things IC shares her insights as a Brit and a leader in the world of internal communications. She talks about the role of communicators during this crisis and the tone they need to set. This is a great learning lesson for US communicators as the Presidential election nears closer.”

Thanks for inviting me on Chuck, I enjoyed our conversation.

How are you communicating the UK’s decision? How is it affecting your internal comms? What messaging are you using?
