The sixth Annual Internal Communications Conference 2018 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

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.

Laura F. Storey

Workforce Enablement Leader at IBM

Laura Storey likes good communication. She’s quite good at it herself. Bad communication makes Laura sad, just like it does to other people - a misread text message, a comment taken out of context, an unopened email, its destiny unrealised. Leading IBM UK’s Workforce Enablement team, Laura looks at how corporate communications can work better across a range of platforms for the communicator and their audience alike – how comms can engage employees, drive knowledge and social business, and help people have fun. Because, after all, communication is all about people. And having fun is, well, fun.
When she’s not being good at communicating, she’s juggling her three kids (not literally) and the Chair of Governors role at her local infant school. She also sings. But she’s not as good at that just yet.
