Internal communication is a strategic function that’s critical to business success. It’s essential to modern business, but it’s often under-resourced and unappreciated. Sometimes you need an external eye to be cast over your strategy, or you need to bring in a trusted partner to help steer you in the right direction, prove your value and make a difference.
Whether you’re looking to audit your internal communication to get a sense of the status quo, you need some strategic guidance, or you just need some help with daily output, I can bring more than a decade of strategic IC experience to your organisational leadership.
I’m passionate about helping internal communicators to shape, deliver and facilitate impactful communication that works in the real world. This is internal comms in high definition.
Internal communication is all about how an organisation listens, shares information and creates understanding – however, to be effective it must be two-way, informed, deliberate and engaging. I can work with you to create internal communication strategies and content that work best for your organisation.
I am considered and methodical. The details matter to me – I won’t skip over things, and I’ll stick around to make sure everything is clear and workable. I value creative thinking, but want to make sure solutions are grounded in the real world. There’s no point in me making suggestions that just won’t translate to tangible outcomes for your organisation.
I’m your biggest supporter, and will help you to prove the value of your work. Here’s how I can help you achieve high definition communications.
I can help you to understand your organisation, the people who work there and how internal communication can support business objectives.
I can review and refresh your existing strategy, or create one from scratch...
I can create compelling content – in your own tone of voice – that conveys key messages, tells stories and articulates both the “why” and the “what’s in it for me?”. Not got a tone of voice? I can create one for you.
I can create bespoke workshops on the value of internal communication, writing skills, tone of voice, and more. Or, you can book into one of the workshops I lead for the Institute of Internal Communication.
Sometimes you just don’t have the resources to get things done in a timely way or you need certain skills or experience to support a project. I can sit with you on a short-term or part-time basis to help to bolster your in-house team.
Need some help but you don’t see it listed here? Chances are I can help, or I’ll know someone who can. Get in touch and we can put together a package of tailored support to help you meet your business and strategic internal communication goals.
