Speak Media’s editorial director, George Theohari, has been busy putting together a dream panel of speakers for the Institute for Internal Communication’s (IoIC) next London event on Thursday 23 January.
The event – titled ‘What makes a Gold Award winner?’ – features three top communicators talking about how they delivered award-winning communications, what the challenges were and what tips they have for success.
Topping the bill is Emily Gibbs – global head of internal communications at the Financial Times – who was named IoIC Communicator of the Year 2013. Emily (pictured below receiving her award from IoIC’s Chief Executive, Steve Doswell) was selected for her work in leading the ‘digital learning week’ project at FT, which helped the company’s staff understand and engage with the ‘transformation from a print to digital-first production’.
Also sharing their winning ways on the night are Mark Peters, Head of Learning and Development at the Spirit Pub Company, and Moira Throp of agency Like Minds, who worked together on Spirit’s ‘Training Tree’ campaign (Best Overall Campaign 2013).
Peter Doherty, founder and CEO of Headlines, will be explaining how they struck gold with ‘Penguin’, an online magazine that appeals to a new generation of project managers.
After the insight-filled presentations, the speakers will be taking questions from the floor as part of a short, informal, panel discussion.
The event will take place from 6pm until 9.30pm on Thursday January 23 at Minster Exchange, Minster Court, Mincing Lane, London EC2Y 5HN. The cost, including drinks and snacks, is £30+VAT for IoIC and IABC members or £55+VAT for non-members.
