Today’s episode of Internal comms TV includes information about the survey I launched this week with simply-communicate, the history of IC and a free book offer for my readers and viewers.
You can watch the episode below and the links I mention in it are here:
Survey: What’s in a name?
From conversations with my clients and people in my network, I realised there is a gap in terms of information among IC pros into who is doing what when it comes to social media inside organisations.
The aim is to explore what kind of terms companies and individuals use when referring to the adoption of social media inside their organisation. Are we talking about internal social media? Social collaboration tools? Enterprise social networking? Social business?…
I’d like to discover what you think works and particularly what name is given to ‘internal social media’ in your company and the reasons for it.
It’s called “What’s in a name? What do you call internal social media?” It is 20 questions long and takes around 10 minutes to complete.
I’d love you to please have your say. Whatever stage you’re at when it comes to this topic, you’re welcome to participate.
What’s the history of IC?
Richard Evans, Head of Media at Diabetes UK, wrote a guest article for my blog this week about the history of internal communication and highlighting his biography of Sir Basil Clarke.
Free internal communication book offer for my readers
Every week internal communication professionals ask for my advice and recommendations on what books to read and today I’ve got a special offer just for you that will save you £22.50.
I’ve featured John Smythe’s book, The Chief Engagement Officer (CEO) a number of times and now the eagerly anticipated follow-up, The Velvet Revolution is available to pre-order.
Until 30 September, if you pre-order The Velvet Revolution you will get a copy of The CEO for free. Yes for free. This is thanks to Gower Publishing.
If you order The Velvet Revolution and would like to review it for my blog, I’d love to feature your thoughts. Do tweet me @AllthingsIC or comment below to let me know if you’re interested in doing that.
I will be writing more about the new book next week.
Here is episode four and I hope you have a great weekend,
