Comms Connect

We can all agree that 2022 has been quite a whirlwind of a year, with the worsening global humanitarian and refugee crises, the ease of COVID-19 restrictions in several countries, and the added complication of inflation. Given the never-ending changes, it is imperative that communicators are informed so that they can diligently tweak their current methods and adapt to apt approaches for the prevailing climate. As such, our event series, Comms Connect, will adopt an all-inclusive communications theme that will aid communicators in navigating this delicate landscape. 

Happening across several regions in the Asia Pacific, Comms Connect aims to connect our communicators with the modern world of PR to build a stronger and tight-knit PR network that can astutely tackle and predict challenges and opportunities in 2023. 

Why Connect?

In a world where the multitude of data and events can easily drown out important details, creating impactful moments has long been an undying priority for strategic communicators. 

Over the year, we have seen improved recognition for communications leaders. According to the Global Comms Report 2023, 47% of them now report directly to the CEOs now. Furthermore, it was also stated that communications is now moving away from the marketing function, with only 30% of respondents saying this is still the case, a notable contrast from the 57% in the 2020 report.

With shifts in organizational behaviors and mindsets, all of which would inevitably affect communicators in all teams, it is imperative that communicators familiarize and equip themselves with the newfound knowledge and skills for ease of maneuvering around the communications space.


Embrace the 2023 Comms Trends: Monitor, Make and Measure Impact

As such, we have specially chosen the absolute theme Embrace the 2023 Comms Trends: Monitor, Make and Measure Impact, for this forward-thinking event that would be rolling out in a region near you.
