Our future as a profession is bright

It has not been a year any of us planned or even saw coming but as 2020 draws to a close and I take a moment to look back at what has happened, what we have achieved, what we have learnt and the impact this has had on our professional and personal lives, it is all quite overwhelming to process.  But as I try to process, the thoughts and emotio...

2020 according to FutureNet

Becky Leonard, FutureNet committee member, looks back and celebrates what the network – and indeed the entire IC profession – has achieved in 2020. Eleven years, sorry months ago, I wrote up FutureNet's resolutions for 2020. Let's get 2020 off to the best start possible, wide-eyed, un-socially distanced Becky said. But as I opened the blog today, r...

You'd know it as Santander; back then it was Abbey National.I started in my local branch for a couple of years, before getting my foot in the door at the nearby head office in Milton Keynes by literally applying for every role I thought I could do....

Internal communications is now a vital part of the employee experience

If you read my school reports, there is a common theme…Lauren loves to talk. From primary school through to secondary and especially in sixth form I surrounded myself with people. I liked to have my voice heard and shout loud for those who weren't as confident. I would describe myself as an average student, with 10 GCSEs, my highest grades were in ...

Why #IChoseIC

I vividly remember being 16 years old in a "career choices" lesson at school and mainly feeling utterly overwhelmed with all the choices. I barely knew what I wanted to eat that night - how the hell was I supposed to decide so soon what I wanted to do for the rest of my life?! So many of my friends had it all figured out - some aspired to be teache...

Why I love internal communications – and how I got there

What started as an "add on" to my PR job, has now become my core focus and most fulfilling aspect of my career. As a kid, I always liked writing. I won some junior writing competitions in school and then edited the school paper as a teenager. The University of Victoria, Canada – close to where I was raised in Vancouver – had a very well-regarded cr...
