To be leaders not followers, we must draw on our professional skills - a fine balance of strategy, cultural knowledge and communication expertise.

‘Changing Mindsets’ investigates the role of public relations and communication management professionals as agents of positive change. You’ll hear from people who are challenging the status quo, illuminating new perspectives, and flipping problems into opportunities.

Critical thinking and problem solving starts with an open mind. Register now to join your peers for two days of networking, inspiring speakers, and thought-provoking conversations.
