What’s on this week for comms pros

What influence does the physical work environment have on organisational culture? This is the topic of the latest Culturevist event, which is one of the many things happening for comms pros to attend over the next 10 days.

Here’s my regular Sunday look at what’s coming up, it covers 2 to 12 August 2015. See my comms calendar to plan further ahead.

What’s the state of internal communication?

placeit-2What challenges do you face in your IC role? What skills do you need to stay current? What’s great about your job? What’s not? Who do you report to? How big is your team? What should your comms team look like?

You’re invited to share your experiences of working in IC as part of a comprehensive study of the profession, so we can all benchmark.

VMA Group, who are specialist comms and marketing communications recruiters, created the survey. It is 77 questions long and will take you 10 minutes to complete.
