As organizations embrace new combinations of remote and on-site working, we are connecting with our employees more frequently and in a greater variety of ways. And “hybrid”, “hot-desking”, and “hoteling” may have replaced the familiar phrases like “foosball”, “free food” and “happy-hour Fridays” to reflect our perks and culture.
In essence, the emergence of ways to communicate and new technologies to capture and disseminate information may be the cause of greater confusion rather than the collaboration we hope for.
What effect has this all had on strategic communications? What does this mean for successfully branding your culture of collaboration, cohesion and community? This day promises to bring ideas to the forefront and solutions to the table.

Framing Purpose and Culture
The power of words have been known to unlock ideas, inspire action and change the world. When they are carefully woven together, they have the ability to break down silos, build trust, and get buy-in for any organizational initiative. This requires a thoughtful balance of art and structure. Three renowned subject matter experts will help you understand why and how to perfect your narrative and encourage employees to own it and live it.
Nell Derick Debevoise - Founder and CEO, Inspiring Capital; Author, Going First: Find the Courage to Lead Purposefully and Inspire Action
Howard Winer - Senior Manager, Employee Communication - Salesforce
Anjan Thakor - Director of Doctoral Programs & Professor of Finance - Washington University
Amplification and Storytelling
Woven into the fabric of every organization are stories of struggles that yield success. These stories are as unique as fingerprints and important in shaping the main story of our organization.
Yet it's true that the authors and narrators who comprise our talent community may be focused on work, distracted by personal lives, or immersed in world affairs. While there is no “one size fits all” strategy to capture and amplify their voices, or deliver the stories needing to be told...In this session, we will hear from three people who will share their own approaches and tools to help us on this front.
David Bator - VP - Achievers
Michael Berardo - VP, Learner Engagement Manager - Citi
Ginger Hardage - Founder - Unstoppable Cultures; Former SVP, Culture & Communications - Southwest Airlines
