This prestigious event provides a platform to discuss, debate and analyze the role of communications in business, society and politics. Participants will explore the upcoming trends in communications and discuss ways to help companies improve their corporate and social efficiency.
The 2018 edition
This year’s event will focus on the future of communications, exploring a wide range of themes from global health promotion and artificial intelligence to the role of social media influencers and the power of ethics in public relations.
In 2017 it became obvious that the communication industry has finally changed…New industries such as social media management and virtual reality finally shaped into separate markets. However, talent, creativity and relationships – in their traditional sense – have acquired a complementary value. Forum’2018 will discuss exactly this new structure of markets and the required new profile of the communicator as a profesional. – Yanina Dubeykovskaya, Founder and Content Director of the World Communication Association Forum
The future of communication
As a keynote speaker at this global event, EU’s very own Dr. Coetzer will speak about the role of education in leadership, and the need for more effective and inclusive communication. His keynote speech is titled ‘The Future of Learning – Education in the Communication in the 21st Century’. Meanwhile Dr. Chakravartti will be moderating one of the panel discussions.
On the second day of the event, our talented students; Vuc Bjelajac, Lea Katunaric, Felix Hill and Elisabeth Sünder, will take part in a panel discussion titled ‘Leaders of the Future.
