Katie Marlow recently went to Futurecomms15 and as she works with CIPR Inside to help us communicate what we do, we asked her to share her thoughts on futurecomms. Over to Katie: Thursday 18 June saw the second Futurecomms event, take place in London at the Crystal. It was a bright day. Glimmering in the summer sun, the Crystal overlooks the docks, with cable cars gliding overhead between the Emirates Royal Docks and Emirates Greenwich Peninsular.
It's true, Some organisations are just like HOME, others feel truly alien. I've worked in a couple of odd ones to know that some places of work just make you feel out of place, zapped of your energy and enthusiasm, and plain unhappy. And that's not good for the organisation or the people it depends upon to be successful. Happily I've worked in many more great organisations where people thrive and love what they do. I know where I'd rather be. As a communicator I find the way organisations operate, their cultures and internal communication fascinating. To the point that it's something I find myself thinking about in the most unlikely places. I was at the cinema with my children enjoying the film 'Home' during the holidays. If you've not had the pleasure, here's a brief synopsis to help you understand the background to my alien thinking and it's connection to organisations.
