Internal comms: strategising to connect and unify your team

South West networking group

5 April 2019

Whether you’re a team of 30 or 300, internal comms is fundamental to breaking down silos and connecting each member of the team with the overarching work of the organisation.

At this event, we looked at how internal processes can bring teams together and how you can strategise to achieve this most effectively. We heard from a couple of different organisations on how they carry out their own methods to ensure internal comms is seen as more than simply an add-on. 


Implementing two-way engagement and breaking down silos – Jessica Abelscroft, head of engagement, Citizens Advice

Uniting different teams through an internal comms campaign – Dan Hudson, senior internal communications manager, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs


About the South West Networking Group

The South West Networking Group is a network of comms professionals working in UK charities and not-for-profit organisations in the South West of England and Wales.

Meeting three times a year in Bristol, each event focuses on a different comms topic with presentations, group discussions and networking. These events are a great opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer-to-peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ and relaxed environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please contact our events team to be added to the mailing list.

If you’re interested in presenting at this event (or at a future event) or joining the steering group, please contact Vanessa Weddell.
