Creating a culture of trust, engagement and innovation.
Internal communication has become more complex and powerful than ever. The war for talents requires corporations, small and medium-sized companies, start-ups, associations and all other organisations not only to communicate with their employees but also to engage and activate them. Internal communication is the new superpower! And you need this power. Internal communication enables you to build trust between C-level representatives and employees, among employees themselves and to create trust into the company’s ability to deal with major challenges such as the omnipresent digitalisation.
An open and agile working environment is essential to increase productivity, to manage manifold change processes and to handle crises successfully. Internal communication is key for driving you through these processes. But you need a strategy. What are the targets you want to achieve? How can they be reached? Who is going to help?
This conference enables participants to develop internal communications strategies, and to adapt them to various situations. Due to the digitalisation, the number of channels and tools for communicating with your employees, stakeholders and the media is more comprehensive than ever. Of course, printed corporate in-house magazines are still there. But there is much more. Apps, social media, videos, intranet and newsrooms: We show you how to use them.

About the Conference
This conference targets all internal communication newcomers and professionals that are responsible for designing and managing internal communication projects. This includes members of PR and marketing departments but also of human resources (HR). Internal communication is organised interdisciplinary very often. Therefore, also managers of other related divisions are more than welcome.
The 8th Internal Communication Conference provides you thorough understanding of how to improve and enhance your organisation’s internal communication strategy.
Representatives of leading industry brands and corporations will present you case studies how they optimised their internal communications. They will give advice and inspiration for creating processes and sharpening messages to make use of competitive advantages. Finding the best channels and tools to reach your individual targets, that is what it is about.
How can internal communication help to increase employee engagement and activate new resources? How can you generate trust? These are only two questions the conference will certainly answer. The Internal Communications Conference 2018 is also about:

Involvement: Our workshops require your involvement. Together with experienced communications experts you will work practically on strategies and communication measures.
Strategy: You will discover creative measures and cutting-edge tools to achieve real impact.
