8TH ANNUAL

INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS CONFERENCE

Exclusive Retreat for IC Leaders

2-3 December 2021

The 8th Annual Internal Communications Conference 2021 is designed to give internal communications executives the space to think about the modern communications landscape and their place within it.

As a senior communicator it is often difficult to find time to reflect and refresh our practice, Day to day demands can mean that we just don’t have the chance to spend time with our peers and share our challenges and hopes. The Internal Communications Retreat is designed to provide a pause when we can think and regroup.

The IC Retreat will be structured around a series of conversations that mix ideas from other practitioners with a chance to explore how our own plans and communications should develop. It should best suit senior level, experienced communicators who can benefit from new perspectives on the role and techniques of modern communications.

We will begin by asking how we are likely to be affected by trends such as changing workforce demographics, the equalities agenda, sustainability and the continuing development of technology; how do we improve our impact as an influential communicator?

The main focus of the day 2 will fall on Employee Experience, exploring best cases of creating a compelling Employee Experience.

Rebecca Sykes

Channel Strategy Manager, Co-op

ebecca is responsible for designing communication channels to reach all 70,000 Co-op colleagues. In her 6 years with the largest co-operative in the UK, she was instrumental in launching Yammer to 17k Co-op colleagues, with an 80% uptake in year one. A Microsoft Office 365 evangelist, she works tirelessly to help the Co-op realise the benefits of the platform.

Previously, Rebecca spent 10 years at first direct (HSBC), managing their internal communications team, liaising with the press, and developing their Twitter and online media newsroom channels, making them the first bank to have either.

I will be travelling from Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, so whilst I will endeavour to be there from 9am, I’d love it if my slot could be after lunch in case of any delays. Also, whilst I’ll no doubt have some slides, I’ll likely want to present a live version of Co-op’s Yammer feed, so I’ll need a strong Wi-Fi connection.

Exploring Neuroscience: The Science Behind Effective and lasting Corporate Culture transformation and employee mental wellbeing

Masterclass - 3 December 2021

Neuroscience is revealing how behaviour originates in the brain. This knowledge gives HR practitioners a deeper and clearer understanding of how to support teams, drive engagement and enable effective change. The learning from our colleagues in the science community is shining a light on how behaviour and mindset matters, how the right environments create the best ideas and how language, consistency and emotion all play a leading role. We now have the evidence to support what we have always instinctively understood.

Deborah Hulme ICWorkshop Facilitator: DEBORAH HULME, Director, Minerva Engagement

Deborah is the founder of culture and engagement consultancy, Minerva Engagement.  Minerva exists to improve performance from the inside out and Deborah works across organisations to agree, develop and implement strategies that impact behaviour, build trust and deliver high performance.  Her practice is underpinned by the latest research from Neuroscience.
