Societal challenges and crises, such as raising energy prices, climate change, wars, and the wake of the pandemic, have substantially changed the organizational reality and will continue to do so. Communication managers are key actors in those challenging times, managing the stakeholders expectations and helping to make sense of the changing environment. In this NORA breakfast seminar the panel discuss learnings from pandemic research from researchers in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, as well as current communication strategies in Norwegian corporations.
