Congratulations to the finalists. We have had a wonderful response to our #insidestory awards. We received a large number of entries and they were of a very high quality. Our judges, experienced industry professionals, have rigorously assessed the entries and today we are very pleased to announce the shortlist. The quality and number of entries show just how much the internal communication profession is growing and moving up the corporate agenda. We are now gearing up for the awards celebration evening, where the winners will be announced. It’s going to be a drinks reception with delicious canapés in the iconic Gherkin building on Thursday 20 February. The Awards will be presented by the broadcaster, Steph McGovern.
