Industry News

It’s been another great year for IoIC North and for internal communicators in our region. Our ever-expanding Hubs  continue to connect like-minded IC professionals and help  build a centre of communication excellence here in the North.

This year’s Central and North Awards, held at the National  Space Centre in Leicester, again showcased the amazing talent and IC expertise from our region. We also know, from feedback, that there’s a real appetite for continued personal development.

Keeping up to date with the latest IC thinking is central to understanding the shifting landscape of communication  in our organisations. That’s why our annual conference,  Better Connected, is a great opportunity to come together and hear from those at the sharp end of internal communications and employee experience. Our open, friendly, focused conversations allow delegates to explore and discuss the pertinent issues as a group, connect and meet friends, old and new. Better Connected is open to all, welcoming communicators outside of our region to be part of something truly inspiring, educating and entertaining.

After successful events in Manchester and Leeds, this year  we are in steel city, Sheffield, at the fantastic venue of Sheffield United. This city, renowned as a powerhouse of productivity, pride and communication talent, is driving forward in innovation and enterprise. That why our theme of Forging the future of communication is such a timely subject, and Sheffield is the  ideal setting for this year’s Better Connected!

Better Connected 2018

Internal communication plays a key role in business strategy and the profession is constantly adapting to meet the changing demands of the workplace. Better Connected 2018 is all about forging the future of communication and asks: What will the future look like and what skills do communicators need to equip themselves with to be future fit?

To help us answer this burning question, we're lining up a mix of impressive speakers to share case studies and we’ll explore the issue through breakout sessions. And of course, there’ll be lots of opportunities to connect with your fellow IC professionals, share, learn and exchange.

This year’s event takes place at Sheffield United’s stylish conference suite, overlooking the ground. Save the date for Better Connected 2018 and keep an eye out for updates and speaker alerts through #BetterConnected18
