Internal Communication at a Time of Epic Disruption

June 15, 2017

Valuable insights and practical advice for today’s IC professionals—free e-book

I’m sure you’d agree: we live in a time of epic disruption. Our world today is incredibly fast-paced as technology transforms our lives on almost a daily basis. It’s a competitive world, too, with disruptive new business models changing entire industries and challenging organizations to their core. Moreover, it’s a world fraught with social and political uncertainty, adding to the stress that many people are feeling.

These and other seismic shifts in society and the world of business are not only impacting our personal lives, but also our lives at work, including the way we get things done. Internal communication is not immune; professionals in our line of work are facing unprecedented challenges during a time of epic disruption.

Earlier this year, I was invited to be a contributing author of a brand-new e-book called Disrupting the Function of IC: A Global Perspective. Produced by IC Kollectif, it was launched this week in New York by the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management, representing 160,000 communication professionals worldwide.

The book features chapters by 30 leaders and experts in internal communication, including Roger D’Aprix, who is on the board of ROI Communication. Each contributor offers insights about our changing profession, and practical advice for communicators, who can become catalysts for positive, epic disruption themselves.

Our brand promise at ROI Communication is to help organizations connect with and inspire their employees. At no time in recent memory has this been more important.

I encourage you to download and read this compelling new book: Disrupting the Function of IC. There’s no cost, and some of the ideas could be invaluable.
