Invitation

Mastering Value in Communications The political, social and economic turmoil of the past few years have given rise to a multifaceted discussion about values, ethics and the corresponding responsibilities of the communicator. As the European Association of Communication Directors we have engaged in this discourse on ethics in the communication landscape and the challenge of defining standards for our profession. For this year’s European Communication Summit, we are excited to be continuing this journey and will focus on exploring the theme of value-added communications. For us as modern communicators, the question of value and values presents us with both challenge and opportunity. Organisations increasingly recognise that societal challenges and corporate competitiveness are interlinked, and they understand that responsible business has a greater scope in society. Defining and communicating the corporate character is an important task in creating additional value for our organisations and for our profession. Our first Main Session will explore how communications can drive the authentic enterprise to create shared value and deliver real societal impact. However, the new realities we face in the current economic climate pose further

challenges to our endeavour. With most European countries expecting little or no economic growth once again this year, numbers and financial results are pivotal. Sometimes dismissed as a ‘soft’ discipline, PR and communications are usually the first to face budget cuts. Our second Main Session will debate how our work can be measured and evaluated and thus strategically be positioned at the forefront of an organisation’s structure. Moreover, we will discover the value inherent in our peers, with over 50 speakers delivering insight into the state-of-the-art of our profession to over 600 expected participants. We envision the 7th European Communication Summit as a platform for exchange, debate and networking, as well as reflection on how modern communicators can strive for excellence in activating the corporate character to create and deliver value and public good. I am looking forward to welcoming you on June 27th and 28th in Brussels.

Herbert Heitmann President European Association of Communication Directors

June 28th, 2013 Summit Day Two The second day of the Summit begins with a keynote speech, followed by a main session which explores value creation through communication. Strategies, best practice and skills in communications will once again be explored in best cases, peer-to-peer sessions and other hands-on formats. Our programme will be concluded with a final keynote on the future of journalism.

EACD General Assembly 2013 After the conference has ended, members of the EACD are invited to attend the association’s annual General Assembly, during which they will review the activities of the network and its Regional and Working Groups over the past year. We invite members to join and discuss the policies and plans of the EACD over the coming year.

The Summit

Defining Value With most European countries expecting little or no economic growth once again this year, numbers and financial results have taken over the public discourse and some fear that values have been indefinitely estranged from the public arena. For communication professionals this means having to prove the role of communications in the value chain to avoid being dismissed once more as a soft discipline and finding itself at the forefront of internal budget-cuts. Simultaneously, with trust rates going down, the general public is highly critical of political, financial, ethical and environmental practices and the expectations of citizens, consumers and stakeholders rise with the amount of information they have access to, rendering values and valuerelated communication arguably more important than ever. In its seventh year, the European Communication Summit will address this exact paradox and look at the central concept of value in all its acceptions, from the sheer value generated by communication activities to the role of intangible assets such as a good reputation or a stable image, from the values behind corporate practices and our work as communicators back to the value generated by ethical practices. How much is communication worth? What adds value to a communication strategy, to corporate politics, to institutional practices? And what role do values, internal and external, play in the success of initiatives, policies and business prospects? With this focus the European Communication Summit once again lives up to its responsibility to

act as the main discussion forum on communication and the societal role of communications in Europe, of allowing communication leaders to take a step back and profit from a broader, wider look at the discipline and its practices. Furthermore the summit will feature the most inspiring of European best practices in eight different strands: Communication Strategy, Social Media and Online Communication, Internal Communication, Crisis Communication, Reputation Management, Cross-Media Communication, Change Communication as well as Public Affairs and Political Communication. Another of the highlights will be the Skills Labs, workshops dedicated to leadership and communication skills as well as the peer-to-peer sessions, highly interactive meetings dedicated to discussion and debate. On June 27th and 28th the Summit, the largest annual conference of its kind, will once again bring together over 600 in-house communicators working in managing positions at a European level to share insights, debate different perspectives, learn from each other and be inspired by new practices, approaches and concepts, taking two days to widen and deepen their network across regional and organisational borders, to reflect on their work, personally and collectively, to assess the state of the art of communications, where it stands and where it should stand.

10.00–11.00 | Introduction & Keynote

The European Communication Summit is pleased to announce our 2013 programme, which will feature some new and exciting formats and will of course include our past favourites.

Best Cases

Workshops

Through a series of best cases from top-level communicators from various industries and organisations from across Europe, participants will be provided with a wide and informative view on the relevant issues in communications today. Best case slots will be featured twice on each day of the programme – giving you the option to mix and match sessions.

Participants are invited to take part in special summit workshops, given at the same time as the best case slots, but which will last for a full hour. Join some of the top-level communications experts in the field to learn practical hands-on tools and lessons for opitimising your communication strategy.

Keynotes

Main Sessions

The European Communication Summit will feature various keynotes on this year’s most interesting topics and trends. Confirmed for this year’s Summit is Tracy Corrigan, Editorin-Chief of the Wallstreet Journal Europe, who will explore the challenges and opportunities for quality journalism in the changing media landscape.

During the Summit’s Main Sessions, a group of high-profile inspirational keynote speakers will engage in an interactive discussion with short impulse speeches, aided by several multimedia formats and facilitated by Summit moderator Karin Helmstaedt.

Peer-to-Peer

Use this chance to bounce ideas with likeminded people, create quality relationships and strong connections. The sessions will be kicked-off by a short case introduction before you get the chance to discuss the latest controversial topics with your peers. The moderator will first introduce the topic before guiding through the sessions.

Skills Labs

Communicating successfully takes a lot more than a nice powerpoint, a suit or a good logo. We all know that to get our messages across takes a little finesse. Through four personal skills workshops, participants can investigate the way they communicate with the world, and can learn some tips for presenting, speech, negotiation, and your career.

Welcome and Introduction The 2013 European Communication Summit will be opened by Herbert Heitmann, President of the European Association of Communication Directors. In his welcome speech, he will invite all of the congress participants to explore the current state of the communications industry, and set the tone for another exciting conference featuring top-class speakers from the worlds of business, the media, politics, NGOs and academia. We are delighted to once again welcome Karin Helmstaedt as the moderator of this year’s European Communication Summit. Karin began participating in the Summit through the European Communication Award, and will be returning to the Summit main stage for a third time as the full programme moderator. Karin will guide us through this year’s most interesting discussions, keynotes, main sessions and new formats.

Communicating Europe this year’s first keynote will focus on how to communicate europe. in times of political, social and economical turmoil a multifaceted discussion about values, ethics and the corresponding responsibility of communicators has arisen. at the same time globalisation and digitalisation of communications, are directing all eyes at the european government bodies for answers. We are looking forward to welcoming a high-ranked european politician to talk these topics.

Internal ­Communication

Employees as authors: Taking Bringing Delhaize Group’s the myth out of communicavision and values to life tion magic

Aimee DuBrule Bacardi-Martini B.V.

Communication is no longer the exclusive domain of a few professionally-groomed experts. A proliferation of social media tools and unprecedented access to information has dramatically changed the role that communicators play today. In this case study, Aimee DuBrule discusses a recent program undertaken at Bacardi to shift from communication fiefdom to multi-voice democracy. She explores the communicator’s role as facilitator in demystifying this process and empowering employees to become active—and vocal!—participants in the communication domain.

Vision and values are a critical component of any organisation. What steps has the international retailer the Delhaize Group (present in three continents and 11 countries) taken over the past three years to ensure all employees understand the group’s vision and values, and how they can support it at work or in the community? This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the cultures and personalities in this global group. Catherine Alexandre Delhaize Group

Social Media & Online Communication

The future of PR – it’s life or death for us

Annabelle Atchison Microsoft

It‘s an age-old quarrel between PR and marketing: who owns the company’s communications? The truth is, in the age of social media, it belongs to all, right down to every employee. Through that arises the need for a new kind of communication management. Will PR rise to the challenge? Or “die”, as a mere function within marketing? Microsoft Germany’s Social Media Manager Annabelle Atchison, whose roots are in PR, shows the steps Microsoft has taken to professionalise social media, and is looking for open discussion on where PR needs to move to survive.

Communication Strategy

I am a crisis: a surprising campaign with surprising results A few years ago, the British Red Cross recognised that, while they had a well recognised brand as an international humanitarian charity, many people didn’t know about all the services they provide in the UK. So they set out to correct that impression with an integrated brand campaign. A television advert wasn’t a traditional charity ad, provoking strong reactions online. Margaret O’Donnell will explore how the campaign succeeded in the ambition of increasing recall and relevance. Margaret O’Donnell British Red Cross

Jackie Brock-Doyle OBE LOCOG

Susan Sheehan Nokia

Nokia has faced a number of complex communications situations while refocusing its business strategy. During this time of remarkable change, communications has played a central role in aligning employees, partners, developers, customers and shareholders. The award-winning Nokia communications team has developed an approach for aligning stakeholders during intese moments of change and potential crisis. Susan Johannsen Sheehan, Senior Vice President of Communications, will discuss how Nokia is using communications to help naviagate through difficult moments and shift perceptions.

Campaigning outside the box Campaigning is the organized effort to influence decision making and shape public attitudes. It is an essential communications tool found in all sectors from public to private to political. Today‘s marketplace with its numerous information channels and social media networks had made campaigning both easy and inexpensive (anybody can create a blog and do it) but incredibly competitive. In order to stay ahead of the game, campaigns must seize the moment, involve key players in the debate and be supported by the Organisation’s wider communications’ strategy. Moderator: anthony Gooch Galvez having headed the the european commission’s Media and public Diplomacy operations in the UK as well as in the United States before becoming Director of public affairs & communications at the oecD makes anthony Gooch Galvez an expert when it comes to extraordinary pr campaigs.

How to build a reputation strategy that works

Thursday, June 27, 2013 Media Relations & Campaigns

Creating a good PR campaign is not ... a trick

In a world where stakeholder audiences are sophisticated and information flows are multi-directional building a reputation strategy that works is hugely challenging. Pierre Goad will share what HSBC has learned about the limits and opportunities confronting communicators in managing reputation.

In 2011 Immobiliare.it wanted to increase its brand awareness and bring new traffic to the site through a powerful media relation strategy. To reach the goal thinking out of the box had to be the rule. Halloween was the solution, and this was not a trick!

Alex Aiken will set out how corporate reputation can be managed and enhanced in a world of 24/7 media, digital debate and multiple stakeholders. He will focus on how effective communications can guide an organisation and how communicators need to change, and will also set out how communication teams need to develop to meet the challenge of open public debate.

Change & cross-cultural communication: two sides of the same coin

Marie-Gabrielle Cajoly Addax Petroleum

The dynamics of organisational change and the successful acceptance of change by employees are deeply rooted in the recognition given to a set of cultural features: mainly language, personal and collective attitudes, behaviours, and values. The past decades have witnessed an explosion of M&As and subsequent growing interest in integration management strategies. In this presentation, Ms. Cajoly offers insights into a cross-cultural management programme implemented at Addax Petroleum Corporation after its acquisition by giant Sinopec - Chinese state-owned company and world‘s second largest oil refiner in order to transform itself and revamp its business culture by capitalising on its culturally diverse profile.

Communication changes

Christoph Rust Honda Motor Europe Ltd.

The motoring industry is a very diverse and dynamic industry. This applies to the respective legislation, the product development as well as the customer requirements. Rigid communication patterns have long been replaced by continuously evolving message creation and usage of new communication channels. Communication has to adapt to changes – does it also drive changes?

Thierry Nicolet will be sharing his experience conducting a yearly campaign aimed at increasing the efficiency of PR agencies through measurement, motivation and best practice sharing. In this session, the latest developments in the field of evaluation at Schneider Electric, such as KPIs and other measurement tools, will be discussed (say good bye to “equivalent advertising”). We will also look at the different marcom demand drivers which result in a purchasing decision and then focus and analyse PR’s contribution to sales with actual numbers.

Public Affairs & Political Communication

Communicating trade: how to keep your cool

Bernard Kuiten World Trade Organization

Facing a diverse and often unpredictable audience has been at the heart of external communication at the World Trade Organisation. From business suits to people dressed up as turtles, everyone had a say and an opinion on international trade matters. But the tone and nature of the public discussion has changed: where it used to be wild, one-sided and polarised, it has become more technical and respectful. Why is that and what led to this sea change? How can we learn from this success, based on a mix of respect and trust, perseverance and patience.

Communicating on a humanitarian catastrophe

Melissa Fleming UNHCR

More than wo years of violence in Syria has driven millions of citizens from their homes both inside Syria and into neighbouring countries. It is the role of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to offer these people life-saving assistance and basic shelter and care. In this talk, Melissa Fleming will reveal how the UNHCR uses strategic communications to drive global public sympathy and engage donors.

Main Session One 4.45– 6.00

Translating Ethical Values into  Economic Value as the business landscape is evolving, ethics obtains market value. Successful business strategy is not solely concerned with numbers and profit, but must know and emphasise the enterprise’s value and authenticity; ethical principles are at the core of the corporate character. From compliance to internal communication, this fact cannot be neglected. indeed, strengthening the link between business strategies and social practices has gained importance in modern management. and so has the practice of responding to an increasing recognition that societal challenges and corporate competitiveness are interlinked. this three-part session will explore how businesses can understand their purpose in society and shape their capabilities to deliver vast social impact and behavioural change creating shared value for the organisation and its stakeholders.

Delivering transparency: A digital journey

There are direct links between good communications with employees and the engagement levels that employees have with their employers. How can communications foster meaningful engagement that has a tangible impact on the business? What are the requirements for good communications that supports the business and meets the needs of employees? This presentation will look at examples of communications that have worked and lessons where new approaches are needed.

This has become the evolved role of internal communications at Alcatel-Lucent. More than pushing information, Alcatel-Lucent plants the seeds of discussion and guides the dialogue. Regine Coqueran-Gelin, Vice President Corporate Communications for Alcatel-Lucent, will discuss how, by using a multi-channel approach and staying close to the conversations, internal communicators at Alcatel-Lucent are moving from top-down presenters to collaborative provocateurs.

Communication Strategy

Ian McNiarn IBM

IBM is arguably the most socially advanced global technology company with a legacy stretching back over 100 years. But how did it transition from a traditional company to one where the norm is an expectation of being able to instantaneously team up around the clock with global experts, as well as locally experienced partners, at a moments notice? It isn‘t just a question of technology, but rather the adoption and utilisation philosophy which stretches from a top-down as well as a bottom-up approach. Ian Mcnairn will discuss the tips, techniques, tricks and problems associated with getting a 400,000+ organisation to become a social business.

The secret to great leadership Steering your way through a crisis: A Workshop by CS&A is great communications

Judith Magyar SAP

According to the European Communication Monitor 2012, 84 per cent of specialists surveyed believe top management lacks understanding of communications. The good news about this sad state of affairs is the opportunity for communication professionals to move towards a new, strategic management function which includes responsibility for educating management to communicate better and thereby become better leaders. Judith Magyar explains how leaders at the global software giant SAP are learning to use powerful tools such as storytelling, design thinking and social media to communicate more effectively about the company’s revolutionary innovations in mobility, big data and the cloud.

Caroline Sapriel CS&A International Risk and Crisis Management

The complexities of managing crises in a globally connected world have increased in recent years. Political and economic interdependencies are forcing organisations to engage with ever more stakeholders to manage risk. Moreover, 24-hour instant news and social media are exerting a level of pressure and scrutiny previously unseen. This workshop, led by Caroline Sapriel, will arm participants with strategies for fast track stakeholder mapping, pro-active scenario planning and social media communication via a dynamic custom-designed scenario played out on the ICONSnet on-line simulation platform.

Social media measurement starts with the definition of your key performance indicators. This workshop will look at several trends in social media measurement and apply different techniques so you can get a better understanding of possible KPIs for your organisation. Although not an exact science set in definite rules, creating clear social media KPIs is a crucial skill for every modern day communicator. The workshop will also look at your specific challenges and give you the tools and techniques to develop your own realistic KPIs.

Think Global, Act Global is a new twist on the old adage. According to a new study by Ernst & Young, developing global mindset is the number one priority for corporate business leaders today. As communication professionals, the responsibility lies with you to help the organisation navigate through global attitudes and behaviours, appeal to highly qualified global talent, present a globally savvy corporate image, and ensure the company communicates its messages successfully across cultures. In this highly interactive and practice-oriented Skill Lab, participants will learn how to develop a global mindset and to apply best practices, behaviours and strategies.

Public Affairs & Political Communication

Achieving efficient, reliable and value-added customer relationships as government

Media Relations & Campaigns

Building a corporate digital strategy: the EU Council example

Organised by the Flemish Government, the Flemish Infoline provides citizens with a toll free telephone number to call for any government information they seek. Ensuring this efficient and effective service is no simple task, as a high quality service on a broad range of topics needs to be ensured, while at the same time achieving cost-effective gains.

Aurelie Valtat will explore the different elements that together constitute an organisation’s digital strategy: online communications, media monitoring, brand management, campaign management, crisis communication and IT governance. She will use the EU Council as a case study to highlight the advantages and pitfalls of introducing such a digital strategy.

Speaking on behalf of the voiceless Thomas Schultz-Jagow is the Senior Director of Campaigns and Communications at Amnesty International. He leads on an integrated strategy for the movement’s global campaigns and communications including responsibilities for editorial, media and digital communication. In this session, he will share the bold and brilliant communication campaigns that help Amnesty deliver its global message of human rights and political engagement.

Keep Walking Greece: The campaign that inspired an entire nation in its time of need

Thomas Schultz-Jagow Amnesty International Mark Aris Diageo

In a rapidly changing media landscape and overall declining marketing budgets, targeted media planning and clever use of non-traditional mediums like social media and creative PR is becoming a critical factor. The Keep Walking Greece campaign is a great example of how to create a huge impact with a limited budget. Creative work based on consumer insight combined with an unconventional and targeted media approach managed to not only build the equity of the Johnnie Walker brand in Greece but inspire a whole nation in its time of need.

Change ­Communication

Change happens

Frank Hilgenfeld Emmvee Photovoltaics

Changes challenge communicative efforts. Communication, internally, externally, especially on the international level, has to be bespoken without becoming victim to fashion. Change can happen everywhere: outside the markets keep on changing, whereas stakeholders, policies, suppliers or internal factors can change, too. Change demands ever changing communicationbang on time with the right instruments and for the right people. That is it. Or is it? Working for a company in a market that resembles a rough crossing with changing winds at shortest warning, Frank Hilgenfeld will discuss effective ways to communicate change internally and externally with a focus on extreme cultural differences, rapid changes in technology, market demands, product portfolio and politicians, too.

How the sport lifestyle company PUMA managed its transformation After being at the verge of bankruptcy in 1993, the sporting goods company became an unprecedented success story by repositioning itself as a sport lifestyle brand mixing influences between sport, lifestyle and fashion. Part of this was an increase in stock exchange value by 4000 percent. Ulf Santjer will describe the corporate and brand transformation at PUMA and how they were covered and communicated to various stakeholders within the scope of change communication.
