CIPR Inside launches annual Internal Communication conference

The bestselling one-day internal communication conference returns to the Kia Oval on Thursday 2 October 2014. With a theme of ‘changing behaviour for better business, the event will feature an inspiring keynote from Benjamin Ellis, energising talks, in-depth case studies and engaging ‘unconference’ style sessions.

The CIPR Inside committee has listened to feedback from previous years and paid attention to the outcome of its annual survey in May. The result is an event with up-to-date, interesting and relevant industry expertise from which members and their organisations can learn and act upon.

Jenni Wheller, CIPR Inside Chair and conference chair
Changing behaviour is central to successful internal communication. Good internal communications helps businesses and organisations to do business – more effectively, efficiently, safely, truthfully and responsibly. Making the connection between great communication and better business is what takes internal communication to a strategic level, gets buy-in from leadership and demonstrates its success. We’re an active committee: our members attend lots of events and know what works and what doesn’t. So we are working with carefully selected conference partners, sponsors and speakers to create a really inspiring and fulfilling day. Each case study will demonstrate best practice, show where they overcame any challenges and show how they measured their success. It’s set to be a thought-provoking and insightful day where delegates will have the time to learn, network and participate in sessions.

Five take-aways from the day will be:

  • Knowledge of what changing behaviour really means and how it affects your work and your organisation.
  • Understanding of how you can use impactful communication to engage leadership and get their support for internal communication.
  • Understanding of what other organisations are doing to change behaviour – from public to private sector and large and small teams.
  • Practical examples of measurement – how and what to measure to get the budgets and show you add value to the bottom line.
