Much like fabled unicorn tales, you’ll hear many myths and untruths surrounding internal communication. They reflect the reality of working as an internal communicator today.

Today I have a visual treat to share with you thanks to the super team over at Alive With Ideas. They took my Eight Internal Communication Myths blog post I wrote last summer and created this stunning infographic. I love it!

Thank you to Alan, Caroline, Alex, Andrew and the whole team for turning my words into this gorgeous image.

So what do unicorns and IC have in common? Myths and stories. I hear myths constantly in conversations with All Things IC’s clients and Masterclass attendees.

Want to know the full details behind the myths? You can read my original article here.

Professional communicator and comms cartoonist Helen Reynolds @helreynolds regularly features unicorns in her cartoons. I’ve had one on my desk since last week…

My five-year-old daughter was incredibly impressed to see my logo alongside a unicorn when I showed her, so thank you Alive for the brownie points.

What would you add? I have a document with 21 myths drafted and keep toying with the idea of publishing it. Perhaps I will one day.

But for now… enjoy.

My 2019 monthly Masterclass dates are now live.

The first one is on Monday 28 January 2019 I will be running my How to be a Comms Consultant – Exploration Masterclass. It will be at wallacespace in St Pancras. Please note this is a change of venue from the Covent Garden site I’ve been using for the past two years.

Bookings are now open for 1-2-1 VIP Days and team days for January 2019 onwards, so if you’re thinking of investing in your personal development, do get in touch and let me know how I can help.

IoIC and CIPR members save 20% and earn CPD from my monthly courses (Except Comms Consultant ones). You can also work with me 1-2-1 or as a team.

My Masterclasses all take place face-to-face in London, UK. CIPR and IoIC members can save 20% and earn CPD points/hours off the monthly (not Comms Consultant) courses.
