Statements and comments of our members on the EACD.

Communications is about making connections and sharing stories. I look forward to actively participating in the EACD community to make connections with professional communicators across Europe in order to learn, share best practice, gather inspiration and to tell great stories about my work and my company.

More than ever it is essential to be connected in order to keep up with our development needs. The challenge today is to be in touch with the right people and selective information that will support your specific interests and enlighten innovative approaches with the exchange of relevant information and experiences. I decided to join EACD to be part of a central platform that supports pioneering knowledge and exchange of experience being fully centred towards communication professionals’ needs and interests.

The opportunity to connect with other communications professionals for exchanging ideas and generating new approaches, along with being on the pulse of the communications industry trends through the EACD, sealed my decision to join. I attended the European Communications Summit in 2014 and went home full of new thinking. The atmosphere was really quite unique in its openness.

2014 was my first EACD Summit as a new member of the association. Joining such a high quality group of communications professionals from very diverse areas gives me a unique opportunity to stay in touch with current and future trends in communication and exchange experiences. Very valuable for my daily work!

2013 is my first EACD Summit as a member of the association. Joining such a high quality group of communications professionals is a valuable experience and it is motivating to know that I can continue to exchange topics and ideas with my peer group.

Camille Bourdon Ballard

Corporate Internal Communications Manager
Essilor Group
When I realised the EACD was based in Belgium, everything began to fall into place. EACD membership is a must because of the networking opportunities. As a newcomer to Brussels, to find a place with plenty of people with common concerns both professional and personal is wonderful. I feel the EACD is a real think-tank, where we can share our experiences, challenges, projects, worries, and learn from our peers to pursue the right way. I have big expectations, but I am sure they will be reached!”

I’m really delighted to join the EACD as it’s a unique way to exchange ideas, thoughts and initiatives with peers on current topics and upcoming communications trends. This access to high level discussions as well as to a wealth of information is of great value both in terms of efficiency in the job and for personal development.

With a dual focus on providing opportunities to meet and share experiences with other communicators and delivering valuable information from some of Europe‘s leading communications representatives, joining the EACD is a natural extension of my career

Abby Bailey

Marketing and Communications Director
EDANA
I've been an EACD member for a couple of years now, and I have always found this membership unique in benefits. It's an easy way to make valuable professional and personal contacts at the regular EACD meetings, which are highly professionally organized and topical in content, granting access to a wealth of useful information. I've experienced fellow EACD members - regardless of their seniority or business hierarchy - to be extremely open to networking, and exchanging with them is not only a key activity for personal growth and career development but also really fun.

Dani Meyer

Senior Manager Internal Communications & Public Affairs
Danone
Being a part of an organization like the EACD is very important, especially nowadays, where good communication skills at all levels is everything. During our meetings with members of the EACD in Brussels, we discovered that we all share the same worries, goals, and ideas. Sharing experiences, stories and opinions with fellow colleagues has been very useful and applicable to our networking for Sopharma, Bulgaria.
