What’s on for comms pros this week

How can you develop your career for free? One of the best ways is by investing time and effort in yourself. There are plenty of opportunities to learn without spending anything.

From reading blogs to listening to podcasts and attending networking events, there are lots of options available.

If you are a CIPR or IoIC member you can log Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points for doing so.

See my Free Stuff page to find articles, presentations and lots more.

TBYSTDI’m currently planning The Big Yak – a free unconference for 150 communicators – with my fellow The IC Crowd co-founders, Dana Leeson and Jenni Field.

We announced the date, Saturday 17 September 2016, a few weeks back.

Keep an eye on @theICcrowd on Twitter for more info and tickets coming soon.

Further reading: Read my article from a previous event: Thank you for having a big yak.
