Some people seemed a little annoyed last year when I called my new Strategic Internal Communication Conference, the first annual. Those of you who know me, know that I'm an optimist and maybe I just believe in the power of positive thinking?

That's why I am excited to begin registration for the Second Annual Strategic Internal Communication Conference. Let's take a look back at the feedback from last year's event.

Did you know:

    95% rated it as Very Good or Excellent, and
    87.5% told us they would attend the conference again?

We've asked for a bigger room this year, and we're excited to welcome over 120 practitioners to Toronto in November.

Here are some quotes from past attendees:

"Visiting Toronto and spending three days with people passionate about strategic internal communications was great for me personally and my company also will get a return on the investment as I plan on using many things I learned in our communications." -- Nick Jezierny

"The content of this presentation was as useful as it was energizing. It made me return to work with a very different perspective."

"The Strategic Internal Communications Conference was great. I was excited to be part of a conference specifically for internal communicators. I’m looking forward to sharing the knowledge gained with my coworkers." -- Kim Fauteux

"The only conference of its kinds in Canada and one not to miss!" -- Christine De Siato

"Regardless of your level of experience, this was a highly useful conference. I think it is important to have exposure to Canadian practitioners and success stories." -- MJ Martin

"Internal Comms are fairly new to me so this conference was like a gold mine of information!"

Some also offered suggestions:

"A bit more networking and "forced" interaction would be great."

"The only thing I would have liked to see is a session or two that provided working opportunities in smaller groups - just to break up the format."

We're pleased that this year's conference has an incredible line-up of speakers and we have made sure that there is some networking and small group work included to create opportunities to interact.

I'm also thrilled to bring global internal communication thought leader, Mike Klein across the pond from Denmark for an interactive workshop you will not want to miss.

The other day, I was asked to contribute a chapter to a global communication manual by my professional association. I was honoured to be asked and quickly said yes. Later that night, I noticed some interesting posts on twitter that fell into two camps:
This morning, my husband sent me a headline of Sobeys (a Canadian grocery retailer) CEO, Michael Medline, stating that they would not "screw up" their recently-announced acquisition of Farm Boy (a smaller grocery retailer). It's not often that a CEO proactively makes a bold statement like that and I have to admit that I am just a little impressed.
For the majority of my corporate and consulting career, I have worked for corporations and have had the opportunity to support unionized environments from the employer side successfully. In 2017, I had the unique and wonderful opportunity to work inside a union and it helped reinforce my dedication to employees who bring our organizations to life.
