Internal communications are often left behind in workplaces.

This week on GovComms, contentgroup CEO, David Pembroke, sat down with a local internal communications expert. Our guest this week is the Team Leader for Change and Communications at ACT Policing, Andrew Babington.

They discuss the new $34m Police Services model, which sees ACT Policing taking a system-wide approach to crime prevention, disruption and response. Andrew talks us through how he is rolling out this program on the inside - helping police stay informed and stay connected.

Andrew has over 10 years’ experience in journalism and government communication. He’s worked for Fairfax as a photojournalist and in the Indigenous affairs and social services sectors as a communications manager.

He has led communication strategies for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 Federal Budgets, Enterprise Agreement bargaining for the Public Service’s largest workforce and was the communications adviser on the Parliamentary Enquiry in to ‘Robo-Debt’.

He is also currently sitting as Non-Executive Board Director of Communications for the Youth Coalition of The ACT.
