Over to Paul:   I had been really looking forward to last week’s CIPR Inside Conference for internal communication and it didn’t disappoint. There have already been a number of articles, blogs and posts in the build up to the event itself, but I wanted to share a ‘behind the scenes’ perspective.

From fanzines to internal comms

We like to share a little about our CIPR Inside committee members. They are the people who make our events happen, who have the ideas and turn them into something useful for our members.   Today we hear from Natasha Gonsalves, Communications & Change Consultant at global law firm, Linklaters.
