Have your work recognised this year through these internal comms awards.

Industry awards can provide the opportunity to celebrate the great work you’ve achieved.

    A timely reminder Dan. It is great to see so many successful awards programmes that recognise and celebrate excellence in IC.
    May I humbly add the newcomer on the block: the Simplys which is now in its second year: Here are last year’s winners.
