Internal Communication Strategy: design, develop and transform your organizational communication, by Rachel Miller 

I can’t tell you how strange, but exciting, it is to write about mine here! I can’t wait to share this book with the world. It’s the book I needed when I was in-house and it’s packed with practical advice and inspirational ideas.I’ve shared mistakes I’ve made and proven techniques I’ve developed and relied on. I’ve highlighted expert views from some of the brightest and best IC pros I know, so you can benefit from their wisdom and advice.

The publisher says: “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.

“Rachel Miller is an internationally recognised authority on Internal Communication, based in London, UK. She’s a Chartered PR Practitioner and Fellow of the Institute of Internal Communication and Chartered Institute of Public Relations. A former journalist, she spent a decade in-house before establishing her own consulting business, All Things IC. She’s listed in Inspiring Workplaces’ top 101 global employee engagement influencers. In 2020, she was awarded the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ President’s Medal for distinguished service to PR.”

The book is available to pre-order today. I’ve also talked about it in this week’s episode of the Candid Comms podcast, which airs tomorrow.

You can also purchase my book via your favourite bookstore. You’ll find it via Amazon, Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and Foyles.

Influential Internal Communication by Jenni Field

Jenni Field has nearly 20 years’ experience in communications and is based in Berkshire, UK. She has worked at Director level for numerous organizations including the global pharmaceutical company Perrigo. Jenni Field was the 2020 President of the CIPR, and is both Chartered and a fellow of the Institute. She has been quoted by The Times, Raconteur and listed on the Institute of IC’s 30 under 30, and Inspiring Workplaces top 101 influencers in employee engagement. She now runs her own consultancy, Redefining Communications, and speaks regularly for organisations and at industry events.

Jenni’s book, Influential Internal Communication, was published by Kogan Page in 2021.

The publisher says: “As the title suggests, Influential Internal Communication proves just how influential internal communications (IC) is, and the measurable impact it has on an organization’s growth. For many organizations, IC often slips down the list of priorities when there are high pressure, high stakes business situations to cope with. This causes a sense of chaos and confusion within the organisation that will – eventually – permeate to external customers and clients. Influential Internal Communication presents a clear, adaptable methodology that will help readers understand, diagnose and fix their own communication challenges, thereby transforming the chaos into calm.”

The publisher says: “Diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) have never been so important in organizations and yet many feel inadequately prepared. In this guide, the authors combine their expert knowledge to provide a practical approach to bridge this skills and knowledge gap for those delivering Internal Communications. Navigating DEI language can be difficult, but Building a Culture of Inclusivity will help Internal Communication professionals, HR and business leaders engage employees in driving culture change to ensure everyone feels valued and like they belong. This book provides a roadmap to manage tangible change consistently throughout the year and techniques that avoid inauthenticity.
