Making the big yak possible

When we first announced the big yak was back, the three of us were ecstatic with the response from past attendees, supporters and our internal communications community.

It is lovely to read how excited you all are and confirms to us this is an event that the crowd really wants. If you missed out on the first batch of tickets, don’t fear a second batch of tickets will be available on Wednesday 3 August.

How is it free?

Each time we run a big yak, internal comms professionals are surprised that the event is free. How is the event free you may ask? It is because of our lovely sponsors. But these organisations aren’t just sponsors, they are partners with The IC Crowd. Each of these organisations understand the benefit of networking and professional development that isn’t based on a budget line.

We can’t say enough about our sponsor, other than without them the big yak wouldn’t be possible. We really do love them! If you want to see what they are talking about on Twitter, we even made a list of our 15 sponsors!
