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.
Our team has developed a series of interactive sessions and a diverse range of stimulus that will inspire you to discover new ways to engage and stimulate your colleagues at much deeper levels.
The IC Conference is for progressive IC leaders, Communications and Employment Engagement seniors. This event would present participants an opportunity to find tools to help them work more effectively and keep up with the fast changing business world.
The event will focus on showcasing examples of good practice adopted by successful brands and use the experience of our contributors and the insight of behaviour science to unlock the lessons that we can all learn and advantage from.
