Communicate is a monthly trade magazine for the UK corporate communications community. Branding itself as ‘the single voice for stakeholder relations’, Communicate’s focus is on how organisations engage with their stakeholders: the press, investors, employees, regulators, the supply chain and the communities in which they operate. As such, Communicate covers corporate communications, public relations, investor relations, internal communications, corporate social responsibility, crisis communications and public affairs.

With a monthly circulation of 10,000, it is read by in-house communications departments in the private and public sectors as well as communications consultancies and service providers across the UK.

In addition to the magazine, Communicate publishes a weekly e-newsletter and hosts a website of the same name.

Communicate magazine is published by Andrew Thomas, and edited by Brittany Golob. It is owned by Cravenhill Publishing, an independent publishing company based in London.
