Internal Communications Camp, part of Internal Communications Conference, traveled to picturesque Paris, for the one-day productive event.
IC Camp was designed for progressive IC leaders, Communications and Employee Engagement Seniors to find the tools to work smarter and keep up with the fast changing marketplace. Internal Communications Day was packed with insights, showcasing examples of good practice adopted by successful brands.
Internal Communications Camp Paris avoided monotone lectures and contextual PowerPoint slides, instead, offered access to information you can’t read anywhere or obtain single-handedly. Delegates enjoyed a very informative and interactive day full of team exercises and debates.
Internal Communications Camp was limited to a modest number of participants to ensure greater interactivity and ideal working atmosphere.
