Call for Presenters

Call for Presenters

Business communication is becoming evermore complex. Messages, audiences, and communication channels continue to evolve and converge. The Convergence Summit brings together experts from both the business and academic realms to explore the changes and challenges convergence presents for business communicators.

The sessions at Convergence Summit 2018 will be designed to expand the conversation on the convergence of communications and business success. The Summit will equip senior and mid-level professionals from a variety of organizations with the theoretical rationale and practical applications necessary to adapt in an ever-changing world of converging opportunities.

The theme “convergence” focuses on converging issues, trends, or areas within the communication profession. Examples from last year’s Summit include:

  • The emergence of fake news and the impact on media relations, business, consumers and journalism
  • The reality of today’s communication jobs
  • Differentiating your organization through purpose
  • Using strategy, neuroscience and preparation for effective crisis management

Convergence 2018 offers an opportunity to:

  • Gain insights from the latest strategic communication research and discover its practical application
  • Discover the latest developments across communication disciplines (i.e., disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality, branding in a social world, and the new role of marketing in selling)
  • Cross-pollinate with distinguished colleagues from various industries
