After winning the internal communications category at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ (CIPR) Yorkshire & Lincolnshire PRide Awards 2018, we identified a gap in the market for high growth SMEs and other organisations in the North of England to learn about and share best practice around the importance of strategic internal communications for improved organisational performance in the digital age. So, we have decided to partner with Reel Film to set up the Northern Internal Communications Network to support those who are responsible for internal comms in their organisations (including Operations/HR/Marketing/Comms/Managing Directors and other senior managers) to make it an integral part of their business growth strategies.
We plan to host regular FREE events in Leeds (and possibly other locations across the North in future) on hot topics that members of our network need support with, providing learning and networking opportunities. There will also be other member benefits including useful email insights/updates and a LinkedIn group.
The Northern Internal Communications Network launch event: ‘Aligning your external and internal brand communications’
Date/time: Thursday 2nd May 2019, registration from 5.30pm with speakers starting at 5.45pm and event closing at 7.30pm
Venue: The Studio, Leeds, LS1 4AW
To launch the network, our first event will be all about aligning your external and internal brand communications on a budget. The event will be opened by keynote speaker Colin Middlemiss, Group Head of Internal Communications and Engagement at EMIS Group plc. He will draw on his experience of previous roles at brands including Morrisons, Yorkshire Water and NPower and share how he has set up a highly effective, strategic and measurable internal communications function at a healthcare tech company which has 2,000 staff across multiple sites globally.
Engage Comms and Reel Film will also cover:
• Better understand and engage current employees
• Attract and retain the best talent
• Improve productivity and business performance
• Manage change/growth more effectively
• Share best practice and network with your peers from other sizes/types of organisation
Refreshments will be served. Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
