Last night I joined around 200 internal communicators at a stunning venue overlooking the River Thames in London for the third annual CIPR Inside awards.

TheICcrowdThe Royal Festival Hall played host to the event which honoured IC pros for their hard work over the past year.

From best example of employee engagement, to best internal event and best digital magazine, there was a wide variety of talent on display and lots of smart campaigns and initiatives.

It was my first comms event since having my sons and was fantastic to see so many clients, contacts and friends recognised and to meet some new people too.

It was good to catch up with my fellow @theICcrowd co-founders Jenni Wheller, @jenniwheller, and Dana Leeson @danaleeson too (we’re pictured together last night).

Congratulations to the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Inside Committee for another outstanding event and to all those who were Highly Commended and Winners last night.
