Following their 2018 Global Alignment Study, Zora Artis GAICD SCMP and Wayne Aspland have been busy researching and talking to communication professionals all over the world. One of their key findings is an exciting path forward for IC professionals.

In the long-term, leaders will need IC to step up more than ever. Those comms professionals who take the step have a bright future ahead.

And in the short term, IC has an opportunity to dramatically increase its impact and influence. This involves re-thinking one of IC’s most important activities – the way we communicate strategy.

In an enlightening hour, Zora and Wayne will talk about how the world is changing and what this means for IC. In particular, they will look at the industry pressures that will drive the demand for IC, a new approach to IC and how going beyond communication could drive greater business value and practical steps you can take to transform strategy communication.
