Welcome to the European Communication Summit 2019! In an age of radical transparency, where tech innovations empower every employee to be a communicator and organisations are increasingly expected to take a stand on social issues, it has never been more important to have a strong, clear and consistent voice on organisational strategy, purpose and values. At this year’s European Communication Summit, the annual event for international communications executives, we will explore how Europe’s leading communicators are developing new approaches to stakeholder engagement. We will deep dive into evolving communication strategies, instruments and channels and we will learn about tomorrow’s tech trends and stategies to lead, future-proof and transform the communications function. Hans Koeleman, President of the European Association of Communication Directors

Keynote Speaker


Keynote

The value of humor in communications The average person sends and receives up to 112 emails per day and spends 80% of their time in some form of active communication. So how do you get people to stop and pay attention? By using humor. When people laugh, they listen, when they listen, they learn. In this session, you’ll learn how to make use of humor in communications. Drew Tarvin Corporate humorist, author, and comedian Humor That Works

Keynote

Digital alter egos as weapons in the disinformation battle While machine learning and artificial intelligence offer immense potential for businesses, they also give way to new forms of exploitation, intimidation, and sabotage. For example so-called “deep fakes” are becoming increasingly realistic and resistant to detection. Individuals as well as businesses are in need of solutions for the problem of disinformation and fake news that is polluting the information environment. Might digital alter egos be a feasible approach? Rand Waltzman Deputy Chief Technology Officer RAND Corporation

Experiential marketing with VR and AR: a whole new way of communicating with new technologies Duccio Manetti | Demand Generation & Commercialization Manager | Baker Hughes The development of product demos has stagnated. Videos and models no longer cut it. We need to differentiate from traditional marketing collaterals and develop compelling visuals which are needed in an industry where some of the most powerful solutions are often digital and therefore intangible. There’s a reason why Formula1 is the number one spectator sport, and there’s a reason why people go to rock concerts. We love the experience. The physical impact. Emotion and excitement. That’s what experiential marketing is all about. It gives people the chance to get to know brands personally. It involves them. It lets them make a choice. And now, thanks to social media and the digital world, experiential marketing can take on a whole new, huge dimension both for internal and external communication strategies. In his talk, Duccio Manetti will speak about the potentials that VR and AR offer for communications, showcasing the technologies and their opportunities live on stage.

Crisis leadership before, during and after: have you got what it takes? Dirk Lenaerts | Senior Partner | CS&A International Koen Peeters | Senior Consultant | CS&A International Reports about a wide variety of business crises, including those involving questions about the ethical and moral underpinnings of some large corporations, have recently seen an unprecedented upsurge. Even when crises are not the fault of the organisation involved, they can be devastating. Without the leadership of experienced individuals who know what it takes to manage crises, survival and recovery can be impossible. Business leaders who can harness the kind of crisis leadership skills that can protect reputation are best-placed for long-term success in even the most adverse circumstances.
