The Seventh Annual Internal Communications Conference 2019 is set to redefine what it is possible for IC professional to achieve. It will mark the beginning of a new ‘blue ocean’ of possibilities for the attendees.

We are bringing together the insights of applied behavioral science to the world of internal communication and it promises to be an experience that will fundamentally change how you see yourself, and what it is possible for you to achieve in your career and for your organisation.

Great communication is defined not by what you say but by what is heard and believed. More than that, great communication is defined by what people actually do as a result.

IC Brilliance Awards IC Conference 2016
