Start Time: 4:00 pm
Location:  Inc

Our next IoIC Manchester Hub will be held on Thursday 26 May 4-5.30pm, at Inc, Blackfriars House, Parsonage, Manchester, M3 2JA.

IC professionals are welcome to share ideas, inspiration and ask questions of others in a relaxed and informal setting. It’s a great place to connect. This is our first Hub of 2022 and the first face-to-face for 2 years! We want to give you a chance to hear from others within the Manchester region about their latest comms projects, ask questions and debate key industry topics. We want to try and cover the challenges of the past, the present - 2022 and maybe a quick glimpse into the future, if we dare look that far! 

Rachel Fraser, Head of Internal Comms at MUFC will be sharing some of her many recent IC challenges and Ian MacArthur,  Director of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter who will be talking about the work of the Charter, you can see further details here.

IoIC Fellows Roundtable: Beyond IC - using transferrable skills to develop our careers

Start Time: 1:00 pm
Location:  Online

We are delighted to be holding our next Fellows Roundtable event on Thursday 16 June at 1pm.

This time the spotlight is on us and our careers, in particular how we can use our IC experience as a springboard for other roles - related or not. We all know IC is the best job around, but sometimes we may want a change, apply our communication skills in a different context or have influence over a wider range of activity.

We'll hear from two Fellows who have made the move and join them and other senior colleagues for a one hour facilitated and open discussion about the opportunities available to senior communicators and how to access them.

To ensure we generate quality conversations, networking and sharing, we're limiting places to 20 Fellows, so book now to secure your place.

The session will be run on Zoom, with the link provided the day before the session.
