Changing behaviour should be at the heart of everything we do in internal communication.
Internal communications helps businesses and organisations to do business, more effectively, efficiently, safely, truthfully and responsibly.
And that’s why this year we’ve put changing behaviour at the centre of our annual internal communication conference at the Kia Oval on Thursday 2 October.
Book your place today to join us.
Top takeaways from our conference:
- Knowledge of what changing behaviour really means and how it affects your work and your organisation
- Understand how you can use impactful communication to engage leadership and get their support for internal communication
- Understand what other organisations are doing to change behaviour – from public to private sector and large and small teams
- Practical examples of measurement – how and what to measure to get the budgets and show you add value to the bottom line
- A great opportunity to meet other professionals, network, share ideas and feel inspired about what you do.
We’re creating an event that brings a mix of real life case studies from business and industry experts.
We’re really pleased to have Benjamin Ellis join us as our keynote speaker. He’ll set the scene linking communication and behaviour. Benjamin is passionate about what people can achieve, especially at the ‘intersections between people, communication and software’.
He describes himself as a social technologist and serial entrepreneur and he’s worked in the on-line world since the mid 1980′s. He has worked with companies including Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks in Silicon Valley, and on projects with Microsoft, IBM and Motorola.
