Webinar: The strategic role of internal communication: How IC will continue to make an impact

Internal communication as a discipline has been moving from the role of a distributor of information and an engager of employees to a more strategic business function. What are the challenges in this move, and how to act on them?Mike Klein and Kasper Steensen will discuss this topic from their respective points of view in this 45-minute webinar. You can expect insights into what the alignment gap is and how it stands in your way; where engagement, the hot topic of the past years, fits in the picture; what we mean by reducing noise; and how being human can help you gain the trust of your audience. You can join the complimentary webinar here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1751079319179007757 Time:  Tuesday 18th June 2019, 10AM CEST (GMT+2)
