What’s on this week? Here’s my regular Sunday look at what’s happening for comms pros to attend over the next 10 days and beyond.

Let’s have a look at what’s on this week…
First is news of an event All Things IC is proud to support. Collaborate, activate, communicate is happening on 3 November via Communicate Magazine.
They’ve been running the Corporate Engagement Awards for the past five years and are now bringing together comms pros to learn from previous winners.
Learn from case studies and those who have excelled in collaborating, activating and communicating. The afternoon session is your chance to hear about CSR projects, creative sponsorships and communicating success internally and externally.
Brittany Golob, Communicate Magazine‘s Editor said:
“Hear from six past Corporate Engagement Award winners that impressed the judges across the sponsorship, CSR and communications categories. Their stories of innovative and refreshing work will leave you impressed and ready to re-examine your own projects and the strategy behind them.
“The case studies will be broken up with some structured networking time that will allow you to meet your peers, create new contacts and hopefully build some brand new relationships and fruitful partnerships. This event is ideal for anyone working in CSR, partnerships, sponsorships, corporate communications, internal communications and PR.”
