Ask the Guru: The challenges of being a creative communicator

In partnership with Alive with ideas our next Ask The Guru event will be: ‘In therapy – the challenges of being a creative communicator’ Being creative in a disrupted day, with pressures on project timelines, resources and budgets can be a challenge in itself. But this doesn’t get any easier when we add stakeholders and internal customers/clients in the mix. We will discuss all these challenges and explore how we can work within these to remain creative and maintain an open mind to doing things differently. The session will consist of a short kick off presentation and then we’ll dive into some discussion and creative activities to get us thinking […]

Do you really make a difference?

Do you really make a difference?

Yesterday (16 June 2015) Stephen Welch MCIPR, announced the findings of the #11ways research that he, Dana Poole and Michael Ambjorn have been working on. They pose a bold question for everyone to consider in their work, do you really make a difference?   Stephen has shared the key findings from the study with us here, so over to Stephen:   “Leadership who don’t listen to communication experts.” “Lack of senior leaders who are skilled in communicating.” “Head of organization dismissive of involving staff.” “Lack of management buy-in, lack of investment in new channels.”   Sound familiar? These are four of the many challenges communication professionals revealed in the latest #11ways research, […]

Using communication to change behaviour for better business

Using communication to change behaviour for better business

New post from Jenni Wheller, which was originally posted on Pulse on LinkedIn:   A few weeks ago I asked the question, what is internal communication? I gave you my top three and you took up the challenge to let me know what your top three were and if I missed anything. What really pleased me about the comments was how we all agree that internal communication should link to better business and changing behaviours – which is exactly why this is the topic for the CIPR Inside conference on 2 October in London. I have taken the comments and listed the key points below so you can see what […]
