Spoiler alert – in my opinion it is! But why should you take my word for it? Before I put this blog together (my first ever!), I did what I usually do when faced with a task – I looked at how the best do it, to see what nuggets I can recycle *cough* steal.

From presenter to practitioner…

I've been working in internal communication roles since I graduated university as a journalist in 2008. Like many internal communication practitioners, I sort of fell into the profession by accident.

Just over two years ago I made the conscious decision to move back into a role that focused purely on internal communications. My time in PR and public affairs was insightful and incredibly beneficial to my career development, yet I knew deep down that internal communications was my true passion.
