Congratulations to all the professional communicators who have had their work, teams and effort recognised via the CIPR Inside #insidestory awards.
The shortlist was unveiled today, it’s incredibly strong with some excellent campaigns, ideas and channels on the list. Now your help is needed to decide the winner of one of the categories.
CIPR Inside @CIPRInside is the specialist member group for internal communicators in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR).
This is the fourth year of the #insidestory awards, created by the group to recognise and share best practice in internal communication.
The entries are judged by experienced industry professionals who rigorously assess the award entries against the set criteria, and I was delighted to be part of the judging panel again this year.
Well done to everyone on the shortlist, I’m looking forward to celebrating with you at the awards evening next month.
