Save the date… The IC Crowd unconference

Today The IC Crowd had the pleasure of being invited to participate in SimplyTV at simply-communicate‘s London offices. (We’re pictured in the green room).

The show also featured David MacLeod and Nita Clarke from Engage for Success, the VMA Group crowd – Michelle Morgan, Andrew Holland and Tony Stewart, and Institute of Internal Comms (IoIC) President and Sequel Group Director Suzanne Peck and IoIC 30 under 30 winner Helen Deverell.

If you missed the show, we have Storified it and you can watch the replay here¬†(you’ll need to register, which is free).

During the show we revealed information about an unconference we are planning in the summer. Following your feedback about our event in December and the comments we have received about gathering the crowd face-to-face, we are planning to do so again.
We’ll be sharing much more information as and when we can. But for now, please save the date of Saturday 22 June 2013. We’re planning to run a free unconference style day for internal communicators, supported by the lovely people at theblueballroom. Benjamin Ellis has kindly agreed to be our facilitator and VMA Group will be onhand to discuss your comms career.

If you’ve not been to an unconference before, it is your opportunity to shape the agenda, so the day focuses on what is important to attendees. We’ll talk more about it in future, but for now, we need your help please.

The IC Crowd needs a venue, ideally a school, because we need a building that can host a large crowd and has smaller breakout rooms. Do you have any contacts who could help us? The location will be London and you’re welcome to please comment below or tweet us @theICcrowd¬†with any ideas or suggestions you have.

Thank you in advance, and we hope to see you there! Don’t forget you can see a complete list of comms events via our calendar. Do let us know if you’re aware of something that is of interest to IC pros that we haven’t included and thank you for your questions during today’s show.
