Over 300 internal communication professionals gathered at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane in London to recognise and celebrate the winners of the IoIC National Awards 2018.

The evening was hosted by Jonathan Trace, alongside IoIC Chief Executive, Jennifer Sproul. Jennifer kicked off the evening's proceedings saying "This year’s judges have been absolutely blown away by the continuing excellence and high quality across the hundreds of entries we received'.  

At the IoIC, we are proud to have been shaping and driving IC standards for 69 years and in this time we have seen the talents and skills of this profession transform -  across channels, strategy, skills and the people who are really making a difference. The IoIC Awards are a fantastic celebration and recognition of our continued achievements and impact on not only business but people. 

Over 36 class winners were handed out, with the new Grand Prix Award winner the pinnacle of the evening. This top trophy went to Trailblazers for Kerry Foods by The Kerry Foods Internal Comms & Engagement team, supporting colleagues and CA3.

IoIC's Awards Chair, Justine Stevenson said: “This year’s entries were of an incredibly high standard. Class winners and award of excellence winners can truly celebrate greatness and be proud of their achievement”.
