How effective is leadership communication in your organisation? Would you like to hear from others and get ideas to help improve it in your organisation?
I have a guest post for you today by Michael Hargreaves, Marketing Coordinator at H&H agency here in the UK. He’s here to tell us about a new online conference they’re hosting on 29 May 2019.
Join a global online conference on leadership comms
At H&H, we know from experience that the best leadership communication is inclusive, authentic, and compelling. It makes employees feel valued, appreciated, secure, and fired up – ready to give their all.
But we also know that it often presents a challenge for IC folk. This is backed up by multiple research studies, which highlight the desire amongst internal communicators to improve the leadership communication in their organisations.
Specifically, this has been ranked as a top priority for the industry for six years straight – whilst at the same time, a lack of line manager communication skills has been rated as its biggest challenge.
Which got us all thinking – what could we do to help?
So in 2018, we reached out to internal communications experts across the globe, inviting them to share their insights, ideas and know-how on how internal communicators can play their part in turning their senior leaders and managers into master communicators.
With pearls of wisdom gathered, we created a comprehensive and insightful report– a compendium of actionable strategies and pointers for IC professionals to take into their own organisations, to help create leadership comms that truly excite, inspire and engage.
Now downloaded by hundreds of internal comms practitioners across 41 countries, the report clearly demonstrates a strong desire within the IC community for support and guidance on transforming the effectiveness and impact of leadership communication.
It also became clear that there was a real appetite amongst the contributors to take the conversation further, by expanding on what they had to say and sharing even more invaluable expertise with practitioners across the globe.
And so, we got our heads together on how we could make this happen – and the first everglobal online IC conference was born!
On 29 May 2019, this unique conference will bring together some of the very best internal communications and leadership experts for a day of inspiring talks, compelling conversation, and must-see content. Connecting the IC community, from all the corners of the globe.
What can you expect?
You’ll expand your knowledge, have the chance to share your questions with the speakers and fellow practitioners, and discover invaluable insights about how to optimise leadership communication in your organisation.
You’ll also have the chance to discover further content and articles from additional contributors, giving you even more useful ideas on how to boost employee engagement in your organisation through effective leadership communication.
We’re really stoked to get this first-of-its-kind event off the ground! Register for a free account (to enable you to join in the conversation), and don’t forget to follow the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #hhICconf!
Will we see you there?
