Stuck in a rut with your corporate communications, PR or social media efforts?

Come to an event that has been inspiring communicators for almost a decade, providing tactics and strategies to conquer all your biggest challenges—current and future.
 

"I loved this conference . . . It made me want to bomb my intranet, company website, and company social media channels. So, thank you because I have lots of work to do!"—Heather Yount

You'll walk away from this summit with practical tips on creating a culture of innovation, injecting storytelling into your everyday communications, empowering employees to accomplish outstanding results and building an organization that can withstand any change or crisis.

You'll learn how to:

  • Employ powerful, authentic language instead of tired slogans, clichés and soundbites
  • Develop a strategic crisis communication plan that keeps all your stakeholders on the same page
  • Measure the impact of culture change through employee feedback, customer and partner data and external perceptions
  • Social intranet best practices—sharing pertinent news and information about your organization
  • Understand the expectations of the public during times of data breaches and other high-profile crises
  • Plan communication strategies that keep all stakeholders informed, engaged and prepared during a merger or acquisition
  • Use metrics to more effectively shape your organization's narrative, increase retention and turn customers into advocates
  • And so much more!

Attend three eye-opening pre-conference workshops:

  • How to develop an editorial process that works for mobile, web, email and social media
  • 360-degree crisis communications: Work with internal comms, PR and marketing to create a shatterproof plan
  • An intensive four-hour workshop led by the famous Second City troupe that will teach you everything you need to create stories that stick

Plus special Microsoft training sessions on LinkedIn, Elevate and Office365.
 

Almost 2,000 communicators have attended this signature event over the past eight years. Here's what a couple of your peers have to say:

"I can't even begin to convey how fantastic the conference was overall. Exceeded my wildest expectations. I walked out of the summit feeling re-energized and recommitted to making a difference and taking a leadership role to drive the EE comm function forward."—Becky Cania, manager of employee and corporate communications, Paychex

"It all came together—the speakers, the setting, the attendees. This is an amazing experience."—Tina Davis, (formerly) executive director, communications and employee engagement, Comcast
