Morning session

Workshop: presentation skills

Get on your feet in this practical session. Trainer Nicky Curran will deliver a practical session on how to motivate and inspire your audience. 

Inside Story: case study

A team from Nationwide will be sharing their experiences and advice around using strategy and insight to inform internal communication campaigns.

Activity: Make Your Move

How do you know if internal comms is the career for you? How do you stop feeling stressed in your role? How do you deal with a boss who doesn't contribute to a positive experience in the workplace? This is an interactive session where we'll move attendees around the room according to their responses to a number of questions around wellbeing, future planning, leadership and technology. It'll be an honest forum – we're looking to hear about the challenges you face and your advice to others.

Afternoon session

Panel - how to be one of the Best Companies To Work For:

Representatives from 2019 Sunday Times Best Companies To Work For will be sharing how their approach in specific areas has helped them score highly on one of the business world's most enviable lists:

Kirsty Bowen, senior manager, internal communications, Coventry Building Society – on community engagement
Robert Hicks, former MD of Explore Learning – on the importance of hands-on leadership
Dale Parmenter, CEO, DRP – on how a "family feel" can support agency growth
Jennifer Thomas, director of internal communications and experience, DLG – on diversity and inclusion


Group session – #WeMatterAtWork card game

In groups, play this unique card game, devised by IoIC, which has been designed to prompt discussion about the qualities and characteristics that make us feel valued at work – and the areas in which we can all improve. (You can check out the game in advance in the second room in the IoIC virtual room).

The Great Communicators debate

Voice's Greatest Communicators debate will come to life on stage, when four comms professionals will talk about four noted communicators from history and the present day – and you will get to vote on who of these should serve as the biggest inspiration for internal communicators.

Join Shavaun Glen, chief communications officer at Motor Insurers' Bureau; Rob Mukherjee, director of transformation at EveryCloud UK; Advita Patel, director of Comms Rebel; and Andy Williamson, head of change communications at University of East London (and Voice editor-in-chief) – and hear them argue the case for their great communicator.
