Never has seeing the bigger picture been so important for communications practitioners. This IABC conference is all about connecting you with the ideas, people and impetus that can help you make a difference back in the business – both immediately and in the long term.
Running on the afternoon of Monday, 16 May 2016, the agenda will be split into four key parts and chaired by Michael Ambjorn, International Chair of IABC.
PART 1: What’s the big idea?
A look at current and emerging societal, technology and economic trends that will have an impact on our lives and businesses over the coming years. Our speakers for this section:
PART 2: So what if?
A quickfire #Rapido session with 5 speakers each taking 5 minutes (and not a second longer) to share their thoughts on what’s hot, and what’s not, in the future of corporate communications. Curated by the incomparable Ezri Carlebach. Our speakers for this section:

PART 3: From talk to walk – what do the big ideas mean to your business?
Michael Ambjorn will lead a reflection on the earlier #Rapido session and a panel-audience discussion of the role communications professionals play in making their organisations future-fit. Our panelists:
