What is internal communication?

When you’re starting out in internal communication, there’s a lot to get your head around.

What is internal communication? I’ve gathered ideas, theories and definitions from people in my network to help you learn. You can read them in my What is internal communication? article.

Want to know more? See my article on the eight internal communication myths to help you cut through some of the untruths and misconceptions.

I’ve also created a glossary of internal communication to help you bust some of the jargon.

A question of comms

I’ve published countless articles on my blog over the past eight years offering career advice. Not least, my current A Question of Comms series.

We often put people we work with in the hot seat, so I decided to turn the tables and feature professional communicators.

There’s a lot to learn from the people I’ve profiled so far. I’ve enjoyed discovering their top tips, recommended books and much more.

Thank you to everyone who has answered the questions, I have lots more profiles to share with you over the coming weeks and months.

Save on conference tickets

If you’re looking for a new job, you can’t beat networking with people face-to-face. I often hear of roles when I attend events, which I inevitably pass on to people in my network.

I’ve got a deal for readers of my blog across the pond, to save you money on the upcoming Strategic Internal Communications conference.

It’s taking place in Boston in July and you can save $200 at the checkout when booking your tickets.

Boost your comms skills

Want to learn even more to help you develop your career and understanding of internal comms?

Sign up to an All Things IC Masterclass to join me in London for a teaching session.

I run one a month at the marvellous Wallacespace in Covent Garden, London, which is handily located for all travel options. Previous Masterclasses have seen attendees fly in from Luxembourg, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany.

Masterclasses start from £399+VAT and if you work for a nonprofit organisation or are a CIPR or IoIC member you can save 20% by using discount codes you’ll find on the website.

If you’re a CIPR or IoIC member you can earn CPD points by attending.

Want to know what it’s like to attend the Strategic IC Masterclass? Read Advita Patel’s blog to find out. You can also see testimonials via the Masterclasses website.

My Masterclasses are a safe place to come and learn, ask questions and get help and advice. I hope you can join me.

It’s a pleasure to run these courses and I always leave each one with a brain buzzing with ideas. Your feedback shows it’s the same for you too.

I’ve been developing bespoke Masterclasses for a number of clients recently, which I’m thoroughly enjoying. Topics I’ve delivered or am currently developing for All Things IC’s clients include line manager communication and PLC requirements.

Last week I taught an HR function about internal communication theory and shared insights into topics including knowledge management, change communication and working with stakeholders.

Next week I’m running a social media refresher Masterclass for a client. I ran one for them a year ago and am returning to see how they’re getting on.

If you’d like to discuss a bespoke Masterclass, do get in touch to see if I can help you. Please note, due to personal reasons I am unable to travel far from London for the foreseeable future.

I am also offering 1-2-1 coaching. Discover how to book a day of my time so we can concentrate solely on you.

Search the Masterclasses website to see what else is on over the next few months.

Following last month’s successful Writing Skills Masterclass (pictured), I’ve asked Helen Deverell to run another one, which is happening in October and costs £399+VAT.

Best of luck with your career plans and decisions.

Do let me know if I can help.
