IABC Europe Eurocomm 2013REGISTRATION

PROGRAM THEME (Download the Full EuroComm 2013 Brochure in PDF)

This year’s EuroComm theme: ‘Disruptive Times, Disruptive Communication’, will be explored in two streams:

 

  • Europe in an age of disruption – an exploration of today’s business communication environment.
  • Reinventing communication – the strategies and tactics to thrive in our disruptive environment.

 

Over two jam-packed days EuroComm 2013 will bring you:

 

1. INDUSTRY INSIGHTS IN OUR PLENARY SESSIONS

In a series of short, sharp, ‘TED’-style, 18 minute sessions, we will hear from leading speakers from across industries. During those sessions we will learn the current state of play, and hear success stories from brands, organisations and consultants in Government, NGO, B2B and B2C.

The sessions will cut cross disciplines – from public relations, crisis communication, organisational change, sustainability, and much more. In our panel discussions after the sessions, we will open up the debate to all.

Our esteemed speakers include:

And more to be announced soon.

 

2. COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES AND TACTICS IN OUR WORKSTREAMS

In our workstreams we will provide strategies and tactics to develop new models of communications in our age of change. Our presenters will deliver practical frameworks for, and spark discussion on sustainability, crisis management, leadership, public relations, and more.

 

3. A NEW MINDSET, THANKS TO OUR HYPERTHINKER PANEL

A panel of ‘Hyperthinkers’ – experts in adapting our way of thinking to the new business communications environment – will focus on the mindset and capabilities we need to succeed. For more on ‘Hyperthinking’ visit the Hyperthinker blog here.

Our Hyperthinkers include:

  • Aurelie Valtat – digital communication manager, council of the European Union
  • Helen Dunnett – head of content strategy at ZN media
  • Ian Andersen – external communications advisor to DG interpretation at the European Commission
  • Angus Thomson – director of vaccination policy and advocacy at Sanofi Pasteur

And, you’ve guessed it, more to be announced soon.

 

4. YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE YOUR OWN STORIES ON DISRUPTION
