Josephine Serieux is Ogilvy & Mather Group UK’s Internal Communications Manager, responsible for heading up internal communications for 1,800 employees across one of the largest and most influential communications groups in the UK. She joined Ogilvy in April 2015.
An award-winning IC specialist, Josephine has over 12 years’ experience in delivering engaging internal communications campaigns that increase employee engagement levels, celebrate company culture, and help steer organisations through change – all driven by creative and powerful content across a wide range of internal and social platforms.
Most recently, Josephine conceived and implemented a pioneering employee engagement project at Ogilvy in the form of a three day pop-up radio station broadcasting 100% live from Ogilvy’s offices on the South Bank, with every single show hosted by employees, most of whom had no radio experience whatsoever. Josephine also devised and led the award-winning internal communications campaign for Ogilvy & Mather Group UK’s ambitious move from offices in Canary Wharf and Paddington to one new HQ at Sea Containers on the South Bank.
She has also headed up internal communications at global TV production company FremantleMedia (where her overall work won a host of awards from the Institute of Internal Communication, the pan-European FEIEA Awards, and the Content Marketing Awards), as well as at broadcasting retailer QVC.
With strong in-house experience across a range of industries, Josephine is highly attuned to the internal communications needs and sensitivities of the businesses she works with, and is able to work closely with stakeholders at all levels to come up with bespoke strategies and plans that inform, engage and entertain.
