The Big Yak is an internal communications unconference run by The IC Crowd. I had my first ever Yak experience this weekend and it was brilliant.
Roller derby and internal communications don’t, at first glance, have very much in common… But, during roller derby training the other week, something struck me. In roller derby, you first have to learn the ‘minimum skills’ you need to play safely.
The debate of where the internal communications function ‘lives’ within an organisation continues to rumble on. At the recent CIPR Inside AGM, Sasha Watson from Arm discussed how she views this question – and eloquently argued that our ‘home’ should firmly be within HR.
I’m proud to have completed the Chartered Institute for Public Relations (CIPR) annual continuing professional development programme for this year.
