Accelerate

A fast-track learning and development programme that puts communicators on the path to success when tackling strategic communication.

The IoIC has joined forces with employee communication and engagement specialist, Gatehouse, to create Accelerate – a fast track learning and development programme designed to enable internal communicators to move on in their career and stand out from the crowd in their ability to translate organisational objectives into meaningful communication strategy. 


A four-day masterclass covering the fundamentals of strategic internal communication, Accelerate equips practitioners with the learning they need to add even more value to their organisation and build their reputation as trusted advisors.  Accelerate is fast-paced, interactive and pragmatic with a focus on equipping delegates to deliver practical solutions while also covering the vital theory. It includes techniques and insights to fine-tune those vital people skills. Drawing on Gatehouse’s pioneering work in bitesize learning, it makes the best possible use of practitioners’ time – helping them to achieve their potential and organisational objectives.

  • Learn powerful ways to revolutionise your internal communicatons in this two-part programme. 
  • Build your confidence, learn the theory and acquire next generation tools and tactics
