Great internal communication relies on having effective ways of reaching people.

You can have the best IC strategy in the world, but if you don’t have any means of communicating with your employees, you won’t be able to carry it out.

There’s a long list of ‘channels’ that you can use for internal communication, from staff magazines to face-to-face meetings. Knowing which ones are right for your organisation and how to manage them effectively will save you a lot of time and money, as well as helping you meet your objectives.

Choosing the right channel for a particular message and audience is one of the great skills of internal communications.

Channel management & event services

Like many internal communicators, I found my way into this fascinating discipline through managing channels – developing the staff magazine at City of London Police into a multi-award-winning newspaper that also won the respect of its readership.

Throughout my career in internal comms, I’ve managed aspects of intranets, staff publications, team-briefing systems and engagement events among other channels.

Here’s how I can help you:

  • Auditing your channels to identify what’s working well and what isn’t
  • Identifying new channels that would work well for you and helping you introduce them
  • Developing content for your channels, from editorial to video
  • Working with your IC staff to develop their channel management and editorial skills
  • Organising and running engagement and briefing events
