The Comms Hive
The Comms Hive was created in February 2019 for communicators to connect and network. After feeling frustrated at not being able to network for long enough at events, due to restricted agendas and programmes, Advita put on her own dinners for comms professionals. She says: “I get some of my best ideas after conversations with comms peers and I realised that if I benefited so would others.”
The Comms Hive is for middle to senior-level communicators to meet and talk all things comms.
Advita continues: “In my experience, once you get to a certain level in the comms profession it can be lonely. Having some people to bounce ideas off or just chat about general comms stuff can be powerful.
“I genuinely value the time I have with my peers and I acknowledge that I’m lucky to have a wide network of people I can tap into. But I wanted others to have this opportunity also, as the best way to learn is from each other.”
We hope to see you at our next dinner, but if you have any questions email email@example.com.
An absolute joy to work with
We teamed up with Advita for an internal comms project and have gone on to work on another project around inclusion and belonging. She is hugely knowledgeable and experienced as a consultant but, more importantly, an absolute joy to work with. She’s collaborative. committed and always brings a fresh perspective. It’s such a pleasure working together, and we can’t wait to find some more projects to team-up on.

They did a fantastic job of coaching us through the thinking and actions
Jenni and Advita were methodical in their approach and did a fantastic job of coaching us through the thinking and actions we need to take. We’re now in the process of presenting the findings to our senior management team, sharing what DEIB means to us and how we’ll adapt our strategy around it. It really made us question what it means if we say we’re inclusive and equitable.

Advita has supported me in building my confidence...
…encouraging me to listen to my inner wisdom, develop my self- belief and to overcome crippling self doubt during an intense period of change. I can hand on heart recommend Advita as a coach a comms professional and community builder. I’m now a member of her A Leader Like Me community and I’m looking forward to working directly with her again. An absolute legend. If you get a chance to work with Advita in any capacity, do so and jump in feet first. it’s a transformational ride!
