So much change is happening so quickly today, many people are having trouble keeping up. The challenges of globalisation, technological change, immigration issues, the rise of populism, Brexit, the election of Donald Trump in the US, to name a few. There is talk of fake news and loss of trust in institutions and business. Politics, business, work, civil society, family life – all are impacted by unpredictable forces in new and challenging ways. 

Phil Riggins of the Brand & Reputation Collective has partnered with the EACD to conduct a research project to understand how senior communications professionals view communications in an age of radical uncertainty (take the survey here). The findings of the quantitative research will serve as a starting point for a panel discussion and audience Q&A moderated by Marco Magli, EACD Regional Coordinator Italy, on the rapidly changing operating environment and the challenges this poses to communicators.

Together with Phil Riggins, we are pleased to confirm our experts for the panel:

  • Marco Bardazzi, EVP Communications Director at ENI
  • Alessandra Mazzei, Director at the Centre for Employee Relations and Communication at IULM University Milan
  • Rupert Younger, Director, Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation, Saïd Business School
  • Mario Levratto, Head of Marketing and External Relations, Samsung Electronics Italia

The event will be free of charge but please register to secure your seat. Do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions: italy@eacd-online.eu

Our regional coordinator Marco Magli looks forward to a lively discussion with you.
