Internal Communicators are currently focusing on communicating strategy, values and purpose, improving digital channels, enhancing leadership communications and developing an IC strategy.
Sound familiar? My 2019 Masterclass dates are now live on my website, where you can get help with these areas. I offer a range of options including VIP sessions where we can work together intensively to help you to succeed.
Gallagher Communication’s State of the Sector Survey 2018 revealed the following areas of focus for IC pros over the next 12 months: Communicating strategy, values and purpose, Improving digital channels, Enhancing leadership communications, Supporting a change and/or transformation programme and Developing/refreshing an internal comms strategy.
Over the past two years I’ve trained 400 professional communicators via All Things IC Masterclasses and these topics are the subject of many conversations in both my monthly courses and 1-2-1 work with IC pros.
Bookings are currently open for my limited edition VIP mentoring packages in 2019. Once six comms pros have signed up, I’ll be closing the doors until late 2019 as I work intensively 1-2-1 with the practitioners on an individual basis.
Book yours today if you’d like to work with me next year to benefit from the 2018 price. Your investment is £2999 +VAT and the price will go up on 1 November 2018.

Browse my VIP packages for internal communicators
NEW: I’ve just launched a 90-day plan option to enable you to hit the ground running if you’re taking up a new role next year.
If you’re looking for tailored and confidential advice, here are your options:
My VIP Day option exists to give you a confidential space to come and work alongside me.
You and I will spend the whole time focused on problem solving and helping you get to grips with whatever you need. Whether that’s an impartial perspective on your internal comms strategy, to think through how to restructure your team or even to bring you up-to-speed with internal comms theory or change comms techniques, the conversation will be tailored to your needs.
I’m open to your ideas about the work we can complete together on the day.
Find out more information. Your investment is £1597 +VAT.
Get help with your 90-day plan
Hot off the press is a brand new offering. I’ve just launched a VIP 90-day plan package and taking bookings for February 2019 onwards. If you know you’re about to change roles, check out this new option to discover how I can work alongside you to help you to succeed.
We’ll spend a whole day together in London and then have three calls so you can keep accountable and let me know how you’re getting on.
You could also split this into two x three-hour Skype sessions if you’re unable to get to London. Contact All Things IC with any queries.
Other ways of using a 90-day plan could include getting ready to apply for promotion or to help you think through leaving your in-house role.

Six months of mentoring
If you need tailored advice, choose my VIP mentoring option. This gives you a whole day working alongside me in London, then six months of support via regular accountability phone calls.
Every year I offer professional communicators the chance to work with me via a VIP mentoring package. I only sign six VIP clients twice a year to enable me to wholly dedicate time to you. We’ll spend the day together 1-2-1 in London and then have accountability calls over the course of six months to help you to succeed.
During 2018, the comms pros I’ve been working with 1-2-1 have used these mentoring arrangements to suit their needs. For example, to enable me to support them as they’ve settled into new roles, to help prepare to leave in-house positions and consider consultancy, or to boost their confidence handling tricky stakeholders and challenges.
I already have one client who has chosen to work with me next year. So there are five places remaining. If you sign up before the end of October, you’ll benefit from the 2018 rate and our work together will start in February 2019. Do get in touch with any queries.
Need a speedier solution? You could have the calls spaced closer together. For example, this year I have helped a Comms Director via regular calls over six weeks as they were new in role.
Bookings are open, so now is the time to sign up to work with me confidentially from February 2019 onwards.
Get help via my monthly Masterclasses
My monthly Masterclasses all take place face-to-face in London, UK. CIPR and IoIC members can save 20% and earn CPD points/hours from the monthly (not Comms Consultant) courses.
We’re rapidly approaching the end of the year. If you’re stuck now, be quick as there are only a handful of places left on my 2018 courses. You could also book a 1-2-1 consultancy call with me if you need tailored advice.

What’s it like to attend an All Things IC Masterclass?
Sam Boniface, Internal Communications Manager at NHBC came to the Strategic Internal Communication Masterclass on 18 October 2018 (pictured).
She said: “It’s hard to put into words without sounding cheesy, but the Strategic Internal Comms Masterclass was some of the best training I’ve ever received. Sometimes with these things you have moments of “I’ve heard that before” or “I’m already doing that” but I can honestly say that even if there was something familiar to me, Rachel approached it in a whole new way that challenged my thinking on it.
I was made to feel both reassured that I’m doing all the “right” things but also pushed to think about whether they’re working and to consider new approaches and ideas. The tools and resources that Rachel leaves you with are invaluable and I’m already planning how to use some of them! I left the Masterclass with a notebook full of notes, loads of postcards of ‘bright ideas’ and a renewed enthusiasm for making the comms in my workplace all that it’s meant to be!
Thank you Sam.
Ceri Aiken came to my first How to be a Comms Consultant – Momentum Masterclass in October 2018. She says:
“Through this Momentum masterclass, Rachel creates a totally confidential yet honest environment to explore our individual business opportunities and proposition. Her insight, gleaned from her years in the business, and the advice from others was invaluable and I left with a head full of ideas and a notebook full of actions. Thank you Rachel!
