Inside Out: using internal communication to build a foundation of trust

12 – 1 p.m.
Tuesday, April 27th 

As we grappled with the combined gravity of a global pandemic, political unrest, and a social uprising, internal communicators were thrust into the spotlight. Organizations felt pressure to publicly say and do the right thing. Some thrived, others survived, and the rest fell to the wayside. The difference lies in their most valuable resource: their people.

Our customers are only as happy as our employees because how we communicate with our peers inside the office is always reflected externally. So how can communicators lead the change from within and be the link that connects culture, engagement, trust and ultimately profit?

Join IABC Great Plains and our guest speaker Kristin Hancock to learn more about the value of internal communication and how it supports the most important business objectives at your workplace.
