Happy New Year to readers of Diary of an Internal Communicator, I hope you had a good Christmas break and are raring to go for 2012.

If you received a new diary and are looking for ideas of what is around this year to help you develop your Internal Communications (IC) skills or network. I’ve come across a seminar which may just fit the bill and be perfect to add to those fresh new pages.

It’s Vive l’Evolution: The emerging role of Internal Communication and is the annual seminar of the central region of the Institute of Internal Comms (IoIC). It’s taking place on Friday 24 February in Birmingham, UK.

Information from the IoIC says: Internal communicators our time has come! No longer seen as the town crier or the post box of the organisation, our strategic role is starting to be recognised. We have even more challenging and exciting content to communicate, more sophisticated and demanding audiences, new and exciting channels to reach them with and increased organisational and employee expectations of our skills and capabilities.

Rise to the challenges
Find out how to rise to these challenges and grasp these opportunities at IoIC Central’s fifth annual seminar being held at the fabulous new Radisson Blu Hotel at East Midlands Airport on Friday 24 February from 9.30am to 5pm. The seminar will be covering communication content, channels and capabilities in a full day event with some of the country’s leading communication experts and practitioners.

The money bit
More information is going to be released by IoIC soon but the prices have been published. There is an early bird fee (on or before 24 January) of £110 for IoIC members / £150 for non members. The standard fee (on or after 25 January) is £190 for IoIC members / £230 for non members. To find out more information and to book, you can contact Brenda@ioic.org.uk.
