Today I participated in a panel on ‘Communicating for a Better World’ as part of the ‘Fusion 2018 Conference for the International Association for Business Communicators.
My co panelists included Communications Expert, Jane Kneebone from Diabetes Victoria and Kristie Christy, President IABC, Malaysia- two phenomenal communicators
in their own right!
The session was brilliantly facilitated by Jacquie O’Brien, Director of Public Affairs at Marie Stopes.
Jacquie sustained the panel momentum seamlessly around many issues, including: the pitfalls and benefits of social media as a communication conduit, trust in the integrity of media, the return of long-form journalism, legitimising communication’s place in industry, countering fake news in a post-truth world and how to be a better communicator.
This was an energising conversation, canvassing the experience of the business, NGO and community sectors. An absolutely uplifting start to the week!
