Internal Communications SIG: Advocating for Internal Communications

  • 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
  • Online event
  • May 20, 2021

Join IABC/BC’s Internal Communications SIG session, where we will discuss how to best communicate your value as an internal communicator.

About this event

As an internal communicator, you may find yourself having to continuously advocate for your role at your firm, as the importance of internal communications is often misunderstood by colleagues, co-workers and stakeholders.

Join us at this Internal Communications SIG on Thursday, May 20 to learn how to best communicate your value to stakeholders, both at the leadership level and across your organization. This SIG will also discuss the skills communicators need to take charge of their roles within an organization, and how to best build these skills.

 

Speakers

This SIG is facilitated by Alfie Penfold and Erin Raimondo, Communications Specialists at IC Thrive.
