The EACD Summit 2021 took place online.
Top communication leaders and cross-industry experts from across Europe and beyond discussed about the changes in our profession as well as our contribution to a changing context; a world in which businesses, governments, NGOs and activist organisations are increasingly finding common agenda’s. The future is now!
At this year's summit we explored some of the fundamental drivers of change to our profession, role and responsibilities as communicators: The impact of technology, the increasingly polarised and politicized public debate and the need for businesses to have a higher purpose, than just being commercially and financially successful. We did this through engaging discussions with key experts and thought leaders from our own and related fields and by facilitating virtual networking sessions for attendees to reflect, discuss and make new contacts.
Join us in conversation with Brandon Borrman, former Vice President of Global Communications at Twitter (currently Communication Advisor to the Franklin Project) as we explore takeaways from his experience at Twitter as well as his insights into what’s on the communication horizon for all of us.
You can choose these topics with three sessions each.
The collision of ESG with the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the game and raised the stakes for crisis communicators.
In a world of permanent scrutiny and polarised debate, crisis communication experts share their experiences and best practice guidance on managing reputation risk in troubled times.
Technology is a major force of change across all sectors and all parts of life. How does it impact communications, how do we stay on top of the developments and how do we exploit the opportunities and avoid the pitfalls?
Consumers’ and society’s expectations of businesses and brands have changed. They expect companies and brands to work with organisations and individuals to help solve the big challenges of today and the future. How do you stay energised in a world where what you do may never be enough?
