What’s on this week

Whats on this week What does your week ahead look like? I’m regularly contacted by comms pros who want to know if I’ve heard of any upcoming comms events, courses and networking events.

So from now on I’m publishing ‘What’s on this week’ to highlight what’s going on in the world of comms over the next seven days.

It’s a busy one to kick off this series as there are various events over the coming week, grab a cuppa and I’ll guide you through.

Got something to be considered for my upcoming articles or comms calendar? Do please Tweet @AllthingsIC or contact me.

On many levels this is already the “go to” site for internal comms practitioners, and the new feature, “What’s on this week”, just adds to its up-to-the-minute usefulness. Thanks Rachel. Will continue to point people this way!

Thank you very much Samantha and Jane, great to hear this is useful, thank you for your continued support.
