The belief that corporate communications and PR are a secondary, supportive function is outdated.

In the era of social media and 24/7 communications, the impact corporate communications teams have on the public brand cannot be underestimated. When something goes wrong, it’s the communication teams on the front line, developing real-time decisions and processes to respond to a crisis and re-establish the brand image in the public eye.

Akolade’s Corporate Communications and PR Leadership Forumbrings together senior directors and leaders from some of Australia’s most well-known brands to examine the rapid change digital disruption has brought to a transforming sector and how to build influence and impact in your organisation as a strategic leader.

  • Cori Drogemuller, Head of Communications & PR, Cisco
  • Shaneez Johnston, Head of Corporate Affairs, Samsung Electronics
