By Peter Handford | Joint Managing Director


We are in a culture where people are trying to improve, all the time, in every aspect of their lives – and that is particularly true of the communications industry, where the tools of our trade are in a state of constant evolution. If we want to stay relevant and at the top of our game, then we must always be learning, always gathering new skills. It’s how we stay successful in our careers and how we provide the best service to our audience.

So this issue is all about learning; we look at the science of learning and how we can apply it to workplace training, we also look at IC qualifications and whether these courses can help the profession be taken more seriously in the workplace. Elsewhere, we learn about how IC happens in the world of F1, and there is a wonderful story about what IC professionals can learn from sign language and non-verbal communication.

It’s a packed issue, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
