Learning topics

This year there are “economy-driven” topics, but we have also built in plenty of sessions that will give you the edge on what's next, and what you need to be doing this year to deliver more value and ROI. Here are some of the critical questions we'll be addressing in this conference:

In this tough economy, what are the best strategies and techniques to measure and prove the value of corporate communications?

When so many employees are feeling afraid and distrustful of their employers, how can communicators help keep them engaged and productive?

What should corporate communicators be doing to prepare and manage through continuous change and crisis?

What lessons can be gleaned from the masterful blend of new and traditional communication channels and grassroots community organizing the new President used to win election?

What about the explosive rise of social media? What about it must corporate communicators understand to survive in their careers and as a profession?

What, exactly, does organizational “transparency” mean, and what should communicators be doing to help their employers and clients “get it.”

In this new media world, what new roles should communicators be playing and how should their department be reorganized?

What are the keys to shift from “marketing to” to “marketing with”?
