Justine Roberts, founder of the influential Mumsnet website, has been named as IoIC’s Communicator of the Year 2014.


The woman behind a site now regarded as one of the most influential in the UK will receive her award at the Communicator of the Year lunch at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in London on Thursday November 13.

The Institute makes this annual award to someone it believes symbolises excellent communication in action.

IoIC chief executive Steve Doswell says: “We’re recognising Justine for her pioneering work in using a technology which was at the time largely untried to unite a group of people who felt without a voice, creating a highly influential communications platform that unites mums of all ages and experience.”

Launched in 2000, Mumsnet is now the UK’s largest network for parents, with 65 million page views and over 12 million visits per month. It has 180 local sites and a network of 5,500 bloggers. It regularly campaigns on issues including support for families of children with SEN, improvements in miscarriage care and and freedom of speech on the internet.

As well as honouring Justine, the Institute will reveal at the lunch who is this year's Internal Communicator of the Year, along with the winners of the eight ICon Awards for this year.

It will be part of a ‘five in a day’ event which will also include the annual IoIC Insight seminar, this year focusing on ‘communication crossing cultures’, with Dr Ana Adi of Bournemouth University among the confirmed speakers.

The other three events are the FEIEA Grand Prix, a mini-FEIEA presentation and the announcement of this year’s ’30 Under 30’ – the rising talent in internal communication.
