Having kicked around comms, engagement and marketing teams for a while now, CommsHero has always been one of those things that has cropped up in my timeline that looked like fun but personally I never really had the opportunity to explore it further (makes you wonder what I’ve been up to all these years). Then I had the privilege of joining The Wrekin Housing Group to head up Communications and Marketing. From day one (actually it was before then), the team have waxed lyrical about CommsHero, the ethos, what it stands for and what engaging and creative sessions there are

I’m Tanya Edwards, @EDWARDS_TE Communications Specialist at Jigsaw Homes Group, based in the North West. As a marketing and communications professional, I am always on the lookout for events to attend where I can learn something new and network with other like-minded business people to help build my contacts within the industry.

To say I was honoured and filled with excitement to be asked to chair the final @CommsHero event of 2016 could be a slight understatement. However, with that giddiness came with it a feel of responsibility – these events get A LOT of attention and A LOT of coverage; quite rightly so. In addition, the previous 2 have been huge successes chaired by the awesome @paulwdiggory and @ChloeAlexandra7 – a housing legend welsh superstar and an award winning innovator, merely delivering a concept derived from an award winning marketing agency @weareresource; no pressure for the one who sells homes for a living and thinks, no i KNOW, unicorns

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” – Henry Ford I went to a fantastic conference this week. #CommsHero, hosted by the lovely guys at resource, is all about bringing like-minded communications professionals together to hear from influential speakers, share best practice and, crucially, to have some fun away from the office. The theme of the day was Dare To Fail. A brave, bold move because as we all know, the connotations of failure aren’t typically positive. Comms Hero is all about looking at things from a different perspective and being innovative – something we
