Choose from Brand Journalism to Well-being: 15 roundtables on the issues that matter to you 

We have 15 roundtables for you to choose from next week and two opportunities to take part at 3:30 on both Wednesday and Thursday. It's your chance to talk in a more intimate virtual group about the issues that excite you the most. Here are just two: Well-being with Cate Murden The Human Element report  from PUSH Founder Cate Murden shows that 40% of employees do not want to return to the office to work full time as they found working from a home environment was better for their mental wellbeing, and they fear working from the office could mean working there 100% of the time now the pandemic is finally at its end. “The numbers that came back from this survey were shocking, but not surprising. If nothing else, it shows that we are still a long way from placing people at the heart of the organisation and not just bottom lines. Why, if we know we are doing better from home, are we feeling pressured to go back into the office? Want to find out more about the report?

But better storytelling is really the end result; it is the product of effective brand journalism. The real work is how we organize ourselves to get there, which is why I like to start brand journalism on the internal comms side of the house. If we can make this work inside, it will improve everything we do outside. Read more about Jim's take on this subject here.

Georgie Barrat of the Gadget Show

Really pleased to talk to Georgie Barrat today about her keynote that will open Day 2 of simplyIC.  As someone who spends her time presenting the Gadget Show on C5, she is  immersed in the latest consumer technology. She is exploring today what we in enterprise comms will enjoy tomorrow.   The pandemic has accelerated the use of comms tech in all our working lives and what's coming down the tracks will change the way we use voice instead of keypads and AI bots instead of personal assistants (not that many of us have one of those anyway). Georgie also has a woman's view of tech - how these innovations must be used to balance out the way we work alongside the demands of running a household and bring up kids. Maybe this will be the end of the leaky pipeline when female tech professionals disappear from the scene when they start a family - and never return.

simplyIC May 19th and 20th

This spring, we are back with our much-anticipated global two-day internal communication and employee engagement event, simplyIC.  Are you ready for a #CommsReset?  At a time when most businesses have had to undergo a rapid transition towards becoming a virtual enterprise, there has been little time to think and even less time to take stock. With a glimmer of light and hope on the horizon, our goal is to support our members and event attendees along the road ahead. We'll be looking to make sense of what we've learnt over the past 12 months - to support you build your toolbox with ideas and inspiration to help you supercharge your internal comms.  19th - 20th May 2021  This year, simplyIC will be taking place over two half-days - 19th - 20th May 2021. The full line-up of speakers and case studies over the coming weeks, but here's an idea of what to expect. Find out more here. We are so looking forward to seeing you there!
