The co-founder of Wordsmith tells us how internal communication has developed in Pakistan in recent years, what he sees as the greatest challenges for internal communication in his country as well as the biggest opportunities for IC in the next years. Here's an excerpt:
"The greatest challenge that internal communication faces in Pakistan
is the awareness of the discipline among the top management... CEOs
of existing organizations don’t think this is a required discipline and thus
you don’t see dedicated departments emerge in the biggest of organizations.
This in turn does not let Internal Communication become an academic
reality either. For this reason you don’t see new companies
adopting the discipline."
Sohaib also shares who are the international internal comms experts and personalities he is paying attention to the most.
IC Around The World is a weekly series of interviews with communication professionals from around the globe working in the field of internal communication. They share their views on the practice of internal communication in their countries, and tell us who and what they are paying attention to in the world of IC.
