Start here: Unpacking communication, impact and influence

I talk a lot about communication being able to achieve many things. And I believe strategic communication is the cornerstone to great leadership, which means that it’s important to be good at it.

Change and communications go hand in hand

Change communication is an area that many of us have to grapple with regularly. Most change programmes are challenging.
