This #CommsHero week will be our 13th event since starting the community in 2014. We exist to celebrate the heroics comms people perform every day and during the recent times, this is no exception. Comms teams across the world have worked tirelessly to keep communications to internal and external audiences going.

It’s time for the #CommsHero community to don their capes and reflect on the massive extra effort in 2020 and realise that this great profession is one that is key to every organisation.

#CommsHero has always been a community and doing good for those people. Now is a time to show our support and we hope these places will go towards helping some of the community when they need it most.
