Months of hard work and preparation to create a day-long conference for communicators in the north has paid off.
Better Connected, organised by the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) North committee, was a sell-out success, attracting IC professionals from across the north, and beyond.
Staged at MediaCityUK in Manchester, the event was designed to share ideas and best practice, and then build a sustainable network of local networking hubs in the future. Glowing feedback suggests the event delivered on those ambitions.
Better Connected tried to turn the conference format on its head with speaker sessions followed by communications clinics.
Our Director Andy Douse was proud to be on the organising committee and the team from Red were delighted to offer additional support, designing and printing collateral that was used by delegates on the day.
Andy said: “The north committee is made up of talented people, who genuinely want to connect people in the north to help improve internal communication by sharing industry leading best practice.
“We asked IoIC members what they wanted from the event and produced a conference based on that feedback. It was great to see so many professionals coming together on the day, networking, learning and talking.
“Our aim now is to keep the momentum going, with localised networking hubs and an awards ceremony (with a difference), so watch this space.”
