The Winter 2014 issue of AQ magazine is now available!
AQ magazine is our quarterly award-winning digital magazine about internal communications and a part of the Association for Strategic Practitioners in Internal Communications (Aspic) networking group.
What’s in our latest issue

60 seconds with… Charles Willy from World Gold Council
Charles works in corporate communications for this small and unique company that is the market development organisation for the world gold industry. We spoke to him about the challenges he faces communicating with a small but global audience.
