This week's chat

November 21, 2016 #CommsChat on regional IC and IC professionals

This week on #CommsChat, we’re joined by Gemma McCall to discuss regional internal communications and those involved in the industry. Gemma created Communicate & Engage out of a personal frustration that the majority of industry bodies, events and IC networking is based in London, so we’ll be looking at solutions to this issue and how regional networks can come together to share best practice.

The topics are as follows:

  • Why is IC so concentrated in London? What does the northern IC community lack?
  • What can IC professionals not based in London do to bridge this gap?
  • Where can best practice & thinking be found outside of the London silos (e.g. IoIC, CIPR)?
  • How can non-London IC profs change the external perception of comms as capital city-centric?
  • What can industry bodies do to implement these changes?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place every Monday, from 8-9pm GMT. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will be posted to Storify on Tuesday morning. We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics – please get in touch with Amy at or contact us on Twitter with any ideas.
