The IoIC has joined forces with employee communication and engagement specialist, Gatehouse, to create Accelerate – a fast track learning and development programme designed to enable internal communicators to move on their career, and stand out from the crowd in their ability to translate organisational objectives into meaningful communication strategy. 
A four-day masterclass covering the fundamentals of strategic internal communication, Accelerate equips practitioners with the learning they need to add even more value to their organisation and build their reputation as trusted advisors.  Accelerate is fast-paced, interactive and pragmatic with a focus on equipping delegates to deliver practical solutions while also covering the vital theory.
