Internal Communications Camp, part of the Internal Communications Conference, will be travelling to Spain in 2017!
BOC is delighted to announce joining the forces with aPortada Comunicació, warmly welcoming The IC Camp to Barcelona this year, in order to accelerate the process of creating a truly inclusive platform for communication professionals from around the Europe and beyond, wishing to propel the function forward.
Aimed at IC leaders, the Day will explore the future of IC from a very different angle, very much in tune with uncertain Politics and Economy, exploring success in a world of shocks, as well as tapping deeper into the science of human behaviour and Neuroscience of communications.
This highly specialised event is designed specifically for those, who love to explore, learn, experiment, innovate and initiate change.
To deliver the above, IC Day brings to Barcelona truly leading thinkers in Internal communication. The key themes revolve around change comms, humanising employer brand, creating corporate culture of Integrity, as well as challenging some of those well- established approaches. By bringing the empirical science of human behaviour together with neuro underpinnings of change communications into the mix, all who attend will get a rare chance to glimpse a future, based on observed facts and quantified insight. It will be an experience that takes us all on a journey which promises to travel far beyond the realms of traditional employee engagement.
The spaces are strictly limited, due to the interactive and intimate format of the event.
