What do athletes have in common with Internal Employee Communication?
Between 1891 and 1903, the 15 fastest male athletes in the world all ran the 100 metres in a time of 10.8. On 16 August 2009, Usain Bolt of Jamaica shattered the then 100 metres record, in Berlin, bolting home in a time of 9.58 seconds. How things have changed!

Information Age: Taking enormous strides for internal communication - without email
“That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” These famous words of Neil Armstrong, on making the first moon landing on 20 July 1969, are still quoted in many contexts to this day and will continue to have great significance for millennia. Symbolically, this sentiment of making enormous strides can also apply in another space. This is the profoundly positive impact that the Information Age has had on internal (and other) commun...
