We developed the original internal communication qualifications for the CIPR and PR Academy director, Dr Kevin Ruck edits a key book on the topic: Exploring Internal Communication.
The webinars were fantastic, the tutors supportive and the online library had a very good collection of books. All of which helped me develop a better understanding of internal communication.
I had applied for several jobs after I had finished my short term contract, but was unsuccessful to even secure an interview. I started applying for jobs again as soon as I submitted my assignment. And surprise surprise, I got an interview.
I walked into the room with confidence, was able to apply knowledge from the course to answer the questions that came my way and got the job!
Your questions answered
- We will provide the sessions online
- Depending on the situation we may be able to run them later in the course, during early 2021. (The assignment isn’t due until the end of March 2021)
My special interests are internal, leadership and crisis communications. These days I work as a consultant and tutor, building on my experience in the BBC, the charity sector, universities and local government.
