How to… help leaders be better communicators
Harnessing the ability to communicate effectively is one of the most important skills a leader can have in today’s workplace.

How to… measure internal communications
Internal communication measurement proves the value of your strategy, your communications and channels. Research shows that while comms people believe that measurement is important, going beyond the data and analytics from digital channels is often a challenge. Understanding what channels or tools work best for your audiences, and when to use them, will help you get better value from your communications.

How to…engage through storytelling
Stories are a keystone of employee engagement, helping audiences to find meaning in messaging and to retain what they need to know. Storytelling is a skill that when done well, has the power to change the way we think and act and is a valuable device to bring business to life.
