What’s coming up at the CIPR Inside Summit

Would you like to learn about internal communication and discover practical tools, top tips and insights from peers?

Today we have news of the first IC Summit from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ (CIPR) sub-group Inside.

The group is celebrating its 20th birthday and hosting The Inside Summit on Tuesday 19 March 2024.

Whether you’re a CIPR member or not, you’re welcome to join them. The Inside Summit is an opportunity for internal communicators to come together, bringing together new research and thinking with tools you can use, regardless of the size of your organisation, the maturity of the IC function or the budget you have available.

It will be hosted online, meaning you can join wherever you are in the world.

All the committee members are volunteers and have worked hard to create an online event that supports IC practitioners working in-house to move forward, whatever stage of their career.

It’s great to see a lineup featuring new voices on the agenda, with plenty of opportunities to hear from a range of people striving to make a difference for those in their organisations.

Tickets are available at £49 +VAT for CIPR members and £69 +VAT for non-members, offering excellent value for this all-day event. You’ll also receive six months’ access to all the content on-demand. CIPR members will be able to log 10 CPD points for attending the entire event.

All three Communication Consultants at All Things IC have booked tickets to join as part of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Well done to the CIPR Inside volunteers and their supporters for helping to create this event.
