What’s on this week for comms pros

How do you overcome intercultural challenges when planning your internal communication? You’ve invited to the 38th Groucho Club networking and learning breakfast this week, where this topic will be examined.

It’s happening in London on Tuesday 12 April hosted by John Smythe and Engage for Change. Special guest Dr Barbara Gibson will be leading the conversation. Find out all you need to know.

Let’s look at what else is on for communicators between 12 and 22 April 2016. I publish What’s on this week every Sunday so you can plan your time.

Got something to add to the list or my comms calendar? Do let me know.

Rachel Miller All Things ICMy week
This week has been a varied one for me, I’ve been auditing a company’s internal communication and recommending ways for them to improve, plus speaking about knowledge management in the 21 century at a Masters in Internal Communication course.

I’ve also been researching the role of social business for a client, briefing designers and developing a series of one-day All Things IC Masterclass training courses.

The excellent PR Careers website profiled me on their site this week. I’ve shared my career path and offered tips for aspiring practitioners.

You can read the whole interview via their site.

What’s on this week:
