Due to the unpredictability of global events, organisations need to be able to cope with the potential for drastic changes to the way they conduct business, and advanced planning is the key to survival. The corporate communicator knows that a crisis can strike a company anytime, anywhere.

In the current global landscape, the role of the corporate communications leader is undergoing dramatic changes, with responsibilities growing broader and deeper than ever before. Corporate communications managers are now shouldering an increasing mandate to act as high-level strategic advisors to CEOs, and frequently serve as members of the senior leadership teams offering insights and business direction.

It is increasingly critical that the corporate affairs function make deeper contributions within the C-suite inner circle, and be ready to strategically advise in times of crisis and scrutiny. Strategic communication thinking recognises the cause and effect relationship between communication activities and the achievement of the organisation’s mission, and in today’s global business environment, creating strategic plans that encompass the expectations and goals of all departments, stakeholders and external communities has never been more critical.

The Corporate Communications Leadership Virtual Summit will bring together leading communications experts to expand your skillsets as a corporate communicator. Attend this practical summit to explore the role of the communications executive in a rapidly evolving online universe and strengthen your capacity for frontline leadership.
