The Future of Communications

Reflections & Discussion on the new CCO.

The European Association of Communication Directors, hosted by BI Norwegian Business School’s Centre for Corporate Communication, invites senior leaders in marketing and corporate communicators to:

Corporate Communication: A Catalyst for Organizational Success

Effective organisational communication is more important than ever before. Communicators and their leadership teams are increasingly learning how to unlock the power of strategic communication in building the organisation of the future. 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.
