What’s on for comms pros this week

Welcome to the 52nd edition of What’s on this week, your look at what’s happening for professional communicators over the next 10 days.

Feedback from readers shows you find this regular article useful, so I will be continuing it. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since the first one!

This week I’ve got a new video I’ve recorded to share with you, plus find out who won the CIPR Excellence awards.

As usual, it’s Sunday morning and I’m writing while chaperoning my four-year-old daughter’s piano lesson. I’m being treated to a rendition of Row, Row, Row the boat as I type.

Let’s take a look at what’s on between 12 and 22 June 2016. To plan further ahead, see my comms calendar.

Something missing? Do contact me or Tweet @AllthingsIC if you’ve got something to add to the calendar.
