Pleased to be joined by Simon Wright, Director at Gatehouse, to discuss a brand new report they produced. For years, they've been sharing an annual State of the Sector report that focuses on internal communication. But in 2018, they had an increased participation from North American communicators and so Gatehouse produced a special report for just North America. It's interesting to hear what the differences are between communicators in North America and other parts of the world.

On July 24, I was a guest speaker at the IC Pro Retreat in Cincinnati. But this was a different speaking engagement than my normal ones. In this one, Sara Jackson, VP at Cerkl, interviewed me about ICology and podcasting for internal communications. For the first time, the tables were turned. I get to share my ICology journey and a bit about the promise of companies and communicators using podcasting to tell their own internal stories. I hope you enjoy episode 1 of 2.

This is the last of the official episodes from PRSA Connect 18. For this one, I interviewed two of the more highly rated speakers from the event - Angee Linsey and Tarek Kamil. Niether are day-to-day internal communicators but both bring fresh thoughts and ideas to the industry and the profession. 

It was an honor and privilege hosting the closing keynote at the event. And something I'd love to do again at another event. . . hint, hint.

Welcome to the third episode from my closing keynote at PRSA Connect 18. It's pretty simple to figure out who to talk to if they are a workshop leader or speaker. But this is a fun one because it features three attendees who stood out at the event. 

In this episode, you'll hear from Erica Goodwin, Andrea Parrish and Randy Berger. Enjoy. 

00:0000:00

And we're back with the next episode from my live keynote at PRSA Connect 18. At this year's event, the amount of workshops doubled due to the interest and I was fortunate to interview two of the workshop leaders Angela Sinickas and Ann Melinger. 

Angela, the CEO of Sinickas Communications, led a workshop about how to get listeners to listen to us. . . and yes, we can. Ann Melinger is the CEO of Brilliant Ink and her workshop was all about how communicators can benefit from hackathons in the business. 

Two great comms and business minds sharing their ideas for you. 

00:0000:00

I hope some of you haven't forgotten about me. It's been a bit of a journey back to ICology but producing this episode rekindled some of the passion. Thanks to those of you who kept asking about it and encouraging me to produce episodes again. 

I needed a break. But break time is over. 

At PRSA Connect 18, I was the closing keynote and conducted a live episode of ICology. This is the first of four episodes related to the event. 

Enjoy.

Ep #49 - Color me HR

00:0000:00

In this episode of ICology, Sarah Cooper, author and creator of The Cooper Review, shares her thoughts behind the creation of "Color Me HR, an activity guide for HR pros." It's a very creative and fun approach to the challenges that many in HR and communications face.

Download the guide and you can complete the onboarding maze (don't get caught with the bad security photo), color pictures to avoid the office party lawsuit and more. This approach is a unique way of tackling normally boring or threating topics with a bit of humor.

In this episode of ICology, Caroline Roodhouse, content manager at Alive With Ideas, shares how communicators provides both reminders and advice to communicators about how to give the written word more meaning and impact.

Caroline provides seven ways to sharpen your comms copy. These tips were initially provided in an infographic but in the podcast she's able to provide some depth and counsel to each. Caroline is quick to point out that for many these seven should be reminders. But since we are creatures of habit, we all fall into bad routines.
