Corporate Communication: A Catalyst for Organizational Success

Effective organisational communication is more important than ever before.

We will explore the role of corporate communication as a catalyst for success. Join your peers and learn from leaders, senior communicators and researchers as we discuss, among others:

  • The evolving role of corporate communication: how should communication functions be better geared up to drive success and help shape the future of the organisation?
  • Dealing with a more demanding operating environment: how are leading firms not only prepared for the future but shaping it through new approaches to stakeholder engagement and reputation management
  • Taking a stand on social issues: exploring driving success by embracing social purpose internally and externally.
