Is there something you really want to do as an internal communicator but aren’t sure you’d be able to execute it?
We’ve started the Gorilla Games for internal comms pros like you so you no longer need to worry about budgets or other factors limiting your creative impulses. And we’ve got some fabulous Gorilla Games prizes up for grabs as well!
As our partner, Mike Klein from Changing the Terms aptly puts it, the Gorilla Games’ focuses on “what we could do if we were operating at our full potential, free of financial, political or bureaucratic constraints.”
We believe guerrilla tactics can help unleash your inner creative, which is why we decided to start The Gorilla Games competition. We also think internal comms pros are super creative and can really take their ideas to the next level.
To enter the Gorilla Games, internal comms pros can choose from 5 different situational scenarios or challenges and attempt to solve these by writing a creative solution, using a “guerrilla approach.”
The best entries will get a chance to win some pretty special Gorilla Games prizes. Entries will be judged by our esteemed panel a.k.a The Gorilla Troop.
The judges want good writing (though they are very willing to accommodate non-native English speakers); they want people to share their own ideas; and want readers to believe that something else is possible for IC practitioners by looking ahead instead of behind.
(Please note that the deadline is December 15, 2018, which is fast approaching!)
So, why should you enter the games? Well, besides the fact that it allows you to flex your creative and strategic thinking skills, we also have some epic prizes up for grabs!
