The year ahead should prove an interesting one for communicators as we take into account the possible change in Government, ongoing economic situation and continue to strive for value for money at every turn. What are the biggest challenges facing your organisation this year? How are you planning for them? I’ve been putting a plan […]Read more >
The past week and a bit has whizzed by! Sarah and Aurore appear to have settled in well and we’ve been busy forming our team and I’ve been bringing them up to speed. We went to the London Transport Museum to conduct some research for a project we’re working on which is taking place early […]Read more >

I’ve been asked by Melcrum to keep a diary of the first month at my new job – which you can read here. I’ve not kept a diary since I was a teenager (slightly different content now!) and I hope it will provide an insight into the role of internal communicators and also help me see […]Read more >
