This is the age of communication, and the current information revolution we are witnessing today has been compared to the invention of moveable print in the fifteenth century. Communications professionals are at the very heart of this transformation and getting to grips with the ever-changing landscape whilst supporting the strategy of the organization is a major challenge.

Topics of Discussion Will Include:

  • Trust and the Function of Communications in Corporations
