Podcast: What to expect from Rachel’s book

My book, Internal Communication Strategy: design, develop and transform your organizational communication is being published by Kogan Page this week.

Its official release date is 3 April 2024 in the UK and rest of world and 30 April 2024 in the US.

Thank you to everyone who has asked me questions about the book writing process, what is in it and what you can expect.

This episode covers all of these points. I’ve revealed how the book deal came about, how I structured the proposal, what helped me to create the content and much more.

Thank you to all the Comms professionals who wrote expert views, it’s wonderful to use this opportunity to shine a light on the incredible work you’re doing.

I will be sharing a full list of the expert views next week via my blog.

What’s in the book?

Internal Communication Strategy: design, develop and transform your organisational communication honours the hard work of internal communicators, highlights some outstanding examples of IC I’ve not been able to share before and celebrates the wonderful world of internal communication.

The book is raw, honest and reflects the reality of working as an internal communicator today.

It features mistakes I’ve made, models I’ve developed and candidly addresses some of the biggest challenges facing IC pros. Whether you’re just starting out, or have decades of experience, you’ll benefit from the stories, theory and reality you’ll find in the book.

Publishers Kogan Page say: “Getting internal communication right starts with having a clear strategy. Internal Communication Strategy is your all-in-one guide to designing, developing and delivering an effective internal communication strategy that will inspire and motivate your employees. Written by award-winning communications professional Rachel Miller, this book tackles the key topics facing the industry today including communicating with neurodiverse employees, how to influence at C-suite level, the effect of hybrid working and how to measure the impact and prove the value of internal communication.

“Drawing on the author’s 20 years of experience, and featuring case studies from the industry, this book covers not only how to develop and write an internal communication strategy, but also how to practically implement it throughout your organization to create a shared understanding and vision. With workplaces constantly evolving, this book gives you a solid framework to return to when you need to refresh your strategy, providing actionable guidance and inspirational insights throughout.” – Kogan Page.
