FutureNet: Committee
FutureNet is run by a dedicated committee of members who are part of the network and have kindly volunteered their time and energy to the cause and objectives of this exciting IoIC initiative.

Your FutureNet committee members are:

Emily Wilson - Communications Manager, Bright Innovation Ltd
After five years of working in customer relationship management, two years ago I made the switch  to work in internal communications in a small agency. I’m passionate about the IC community and in finding ways to broaden the profession’s horizons, including its promotion as a viable career option to a wider audience. Outside of work, I balance cultural pursuits and travelling with keeping my American culture alive in London.

Jacqueline Ryan - Internal Communications and Employee Engagement Advisor, Kerry Foods
I’m an Internal Communications and Employee Engagement Advisor at Kerry Foods which is a great place to work given my love of food! I’ve absolutely loved my Internal Comms journey so far and I’m looking forward to being part of FutureNet, connecting with others in the profession and helping to bring useful opportunities and experiences to those new to the world of Internal Comms.

Joanna Freeman - Communications Executive, Kuehne + Nagel
After finishing my degree in French, Spanish, and Politics I joined Kuehne + Nagel on our Communications graduate scheme. Two very exciting and busy years later I’ve got a permanent position and I’m looking forward to developing my career in Internal Comms.

Kate Sheriff - Senior Communications Advisor, Eni International Resources Ltd, Eni S.p.A.
I’ve worked in internal comms for two years, but my background is talent attraction. Since moving in-house and taking on internal comms responsibilities, I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned to a new discipline. I’m excited to be part of FutureNet; it’s an opportunity to share ideas with like-minded people, and to be part of a support network!

Rachel Bowyer - Communications Lead, DS Smith Plc
I'm in my third internal communications role and have experience of strategy creation, event planning, filming and writing. Before that I taught English in Asia for four years where I found my love of creativity, engagement and planning. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I’d discovered the perfect mix for IC.

Rebecca Leonard - Communications and Content Manager, Sequel Group
After a quick stint in publishing with Thomson Reuters, I started my IC career running an intranet for Volkswagen Group employees. I then moved agency-side, joining Sequel Group in 2014. A graduate of the IoIC Advanced Diploma, I’m a firm believer in investing in professional development and am excited to see how FutureNet can help IC newbies to build their confidence and careers.

Sarah McAuley -  Internal Communications Manager for Paragon Banking Group PLC.
My background is in social/economic research but I found my IC calling over two years ago when I saw the positive impact effective IC has on connecting and engaging people. I’m based in the Midlands and I’m really keen to support FutureNet’s regional activity and create an accessible network to help newcomers learn and grow.

Dominie Shelley - Communications Manager, Willmott Dixon Interiors
I have been working in IC for just under a year. Prior to this I have worked in business development, and part of a bid winning, proposals and marketing team. It is amazing how many transferable skills can lead you into IC. I am looking forward to the journey to help other fellow IC people who are also new to it, build on their support network, learn, develop and share best practice. I also want to join the movement and promote the importance of Internal Communications and demonstrate how it is a key driving force in organisational performance and growth.
