Getting a membership with the IoIC seemed like the obvious choice

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.
