What’s on for comms pros this week

PRideawardsEvery year numerous award schemes call on you to have your hard work recognised, and this week is no exception.

I’ve just judged two categories of the Institute of Internal Communication Awards, and the shortlist will be revealed later in the summer.

Now the early bird deadline is looming for the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ (CIPR) PRide Awards.

Today’s What’s on this week covers 4 – 14 June 2016. You can plan further ahead using my Comms Calendar.

They’re the leading regional PR awards and recognise the outstanding work you’ve been delivering for your clients and employers across the UK.

The awards map is below so you can choose the relevant one for your region. See their website for full information.
