Are you responsible for communicating post-pandemic working patterns inside your organisation?
Do you need to make any changes to your internal communication channels due to home workers?
Are your stakeholders asking you for advice and guidance relating to hybrid working?
If so, I’ve got you covered.
I’ve developed a brand new All Things IC Online Masterclass to support internal communicators, as you think through the various topics above.
Thank you to everyone who voted via LinkedIn to name the course. The internal communicator’s guide to hybrid working is out now.
It’s packed with brand new content including bespoke videos, workbooks, text lessons, quizzes and surveys.
What’s inside the course?
The internal communicator’s guide to hybrid working has 53 lessons and covers topics including:
- What changes do you need to make to your IC channels?
- My CLEAR model.
- The importance of language.
- The role of leaders and managers in a hybrid world.
- What’s the purpose of your office space?
- Why you need to focus on wellbeing.
- The impact of working patterns on culture
and much more.
You may use the phrase hybrid working, flexible working, home working, post-pandemic working, or something else.
For consistency, the course uses the phrase hybrid working.
Some organisations have had a hybrid workforce for years, with a mindset of work being a thing you do, rather than a place you go.
However, the pandemic has sparked conversations for the first time in many organisations. I know internal communicators are looking for advice and guidance, which is why I’ve created this Online Masterclass.

What to expect from the course
All of my Online Masterclasses have been designed to be completed at your own pace.
You have 12 months’ access from the date of enrolment and there’s no live content. This means you can complete it all in one sitting over a whole day, or dip in and out as you choose over a year.
The internal communicator’s guide to hybrid working also includes some models and frameworks I’ve devised, to help you structure your thinking around hybrid working.
They include my CLEAR model and the one below. I’ve drawn on these to guide you through the course and highlight areas for you to think about.
If you invest time watching all the videos and completing the workbooks, you’ll end up with a detailed set of notes applicable to your culture and organisation.
