Are you ready to rethink strategic change communication?

No, this is not another session about how to provide communication support to a change initiative. #Areyouready? to Shift your thinking about the role of communication in the change life cycle. Nothing prepares you better than handling COVID-19 over the last few months.

#Areyouready? to consider how you need deliver strategic thinking that can be tabled to c-suite to get buy-in? #Areyouready? to stop talking like a communicator, and elevate your pitch to executives? In this session, we will unpack the rapid evolution of the crisis in two case studies, and how each responded in different ways, from different baselines.

We will touch on the journey, the value chain, the successes and challenges. And how in the end, as business partners to key functions in the business, we landed world class communication and engagement solutions in complex federated business; through collaboration, strategic partnerships, and business acumen. Importantly, how a rapidly deployed COVID-19 employee engagement survey initiated by the comms function provided insights that informed operations, rather then the other way round.
