The 7th Annual Internal Communications Conference 2019 is designed to give internal communications executives the space to think about the modern communications landscape and their place within it.

IC Brilliance Awards IC Conference 2016

This international The IC Conference includes a mix of short presentations and discussions, with conversations about Gen Z from a leading author, exercises on mindful leadership and debates about growing a team. Our ambition is to create a space for IC Seniors to step away from the day to day and grab a bit of mind space.

With speakers lined up like the Katharina Auer, Clifford Chance’s Paul Osgood, the BBC’s Emily Kirwan and PepsiCo’s Jemima Bradbury-Wade, delegates will be hearing how we are likely to be affected by trends such as changing workforce demographics, the equalities agenda, sustainability and the continuing development of technology.

With its impeccable reputation, this truly international IC Conference draws senior level communication leaders from far and wide. It’s a perfect opportunity for delegates to engage with a diverse group of peers while still ensuring each attendee learns from the valuable knowledge and experience shared at the conference.

EXCLUSIVE RETREAT FOR IC LEADERS

We are bringing the insights of applied behavioural science to the world of internal communication. 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.
