The Communicators’ Network to expand countywide

This month communicators from organisations across Cambridgeshire will celebrate the relaunch of the Peterborough Communicators’ Network with an event on Wednesday 28th March. Following a number of successful years the group is changing its name to The Communicators’ Network as it expands to include professionals from across the county.

The aim of The Communicators’ Network (TCN) is to build and develop strong working relationships between those working in marketing, PR and journalism across Cambridgeshire. The network holds an annual series of awards and hosts events throughout the year, including debates and inviting key industry speakers to the county.

For 2012 TCN has undergone a major revamp including a new e-newsletter with a ‘meet a journalist’ feature each month, details on the latest jobs and a fashion column. The e-newsletter also gives contributors the chance to share their expertise by profiling case studies and to comment on current industry matters.

The Communicators’ Network is free to join for anyone working in marketing, PR and journalism in Cambridgeshire and is run by Peterborough-based PR and marketing specialists Athene Communications.

The relaunch event takes place on Wednesday 28th March in The Tap Room at the Brewery Tap in Peterborough. The evening will run from 5pm-8pm where you can enjoy your first drink for free accompanied by some Thai canapés. The evening is a great opportunity to have an informal chat with a range of people from across the industry and to strike up new relationships.

The second event of the year is on Wednesday 6th June when TCN, Athene and Peterborough Environment City Trust host a debate discussing how businesses should respond to the green agenda in times of austerity. The debate will be held at the Key Theatre, is supported by Vivacity Culture & Leisure and will be part of Peterborough’s Green Festival 2012.

Jennie Cox, Head of PR and social media at, was a winner at last year’s awards; “The expansion of The Communicators’ Network is really exciting. For a destination super store such as Kiddicare, often our communications are relevant for a slightly wider ‘regional’ audience. To have access to a network of colleagues and journalists across Cambridgeshire is wonderful – and I’m particularly looking forward to adding to my little black book through attending the numerous events TCN has planned”.

Steve Titman from Athene Communications and TCN, says that 2012 was the perfect year to expand the network; “We’re really keen to see relationships grow across the county with many exciting projects on the horizon including the enterprise zone in Alconbury and the progression of Northstowe. Cambridgeshire has an exciting future and we hope TCN can play a part by helping to bring communication professionals together”.
