Inside Out is soon be replaced with Voice, our new quarterly print publication click here for more information.  We will continue to host previous copies of Inside Out available for members . InsideOut focuses on: professional development, new thinking, industry knowledge, case studies on award-winning work.
InsideOut October 2014
They’re the pinnacle for any internal communicators – the three ‘Gold’ trophies presented to the overall winners at the IoIC Awards 2014. We talk to the people behind the Best Print, Best Digital and Best Strategy awards to find out what makes them and their work so special.

Also this month, Katie Macaulay talks about why comms must move “from cascade to conversation”, we look at how the NHS has boosted employees’ take-up on flu jabs, the five Cs of change communication and Notting Hill Housing falls under the Sector Spotlight.
InsideOut September 2014
It’s an essential skill for any communicator: the ability to stand up in front of an audience and present. You have to make your case, gain support and spread the word - but public speaking is also one of our greatest fears. Presentation guru Charles Serio- who has advised everyone from The Guardian and Nokia to Ford and Unilever - tells InsideOut how we can all overcome our anxiety by covering the five issues that really matter (including what to do with your hands and how to avoid ‘death by PowerPoint’).

Also in this edition, the Blueprint for creating happy workplaces, getting back to IC basics, why comms need to be reinvented, using children’s toys to communicate complex messages and the Sector Spotlight falls on the John Lewis Partnership.
InsideOut August 2014
Your boss says “Perhaps you’d like to think about…” when of course he means “This is an order” and, if you’re British, you’d instinctively know that. But, if you were, say, Dutch, you might think he means “Just an idea, feel free to ignore it”. Cultural differences can make or break comms in a cross-cultural workforce, especially in a multinational company. InsideOut talks to Erin Meyer, author of The Culture Map, about how to handle cross-cultural comms.

Also in this edition, plans for an IoIC Board revamp, a 30 Under 30 update, the latest social media training, spotlight on comms at the NSPCC and a look at whether it can pay to work for free.
InsideOut July 2014
Your workforce is out and about across a wide area, they never sit behind a desk and they work shifts 24/7. When and, more importantly, how can you communicate with them? July’s InsideOut takes a look at internal comms apps which allow employees to access work news and information via their own smartphone or tablet.

Also, FT columnist Lucy Kellaway warns internal communicators: "No-one's reading your stuff...", there’s a chance to find out how planning your comms will help your workload, why employees may need “a kick up the ass”, and Steve Knight argues that intranets are too often nothing more than a “damp squib”.
InsideOut June 2014
Superstorm Sandy was one of the worst storms the US has ever seen. It was 1,000 miles wide and wind speeds hit 140mph. It damaged 650,000 homes and left 8.5million people without power. The employees of National Grid worked tirelessly to rebuild the infrastructure – and the 72-page book marking their efforts has won two IABC Gold Quills for National Grid and UK-based 44 Communications. InsideOut has a full case study.

Also in this issue we talk to Kevin Keohane about combining engaged employees with a strong brand, TV neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis about sorting your brain out, stand-up comic Stephanie Davies about comedy in comms, plus the importance of grammar and whether personal appearance matters for communicators.
