CENS is pleased to invite you to participate in this webinar (online seminar) featuring Carolyn Camoens, the Managing Director (Asia) for Hume Brophy, an international communications firm specialising in public affairs and public relations. This will be followed by a moderated Q&A session.
Our relationship with information has changed dramatically since the beginning of the year, when we were plunged headlong into the scariest, most unpredictable global health crisis in recent history. As individuals, we find ourselves increasingly challenged with the deluge of news and information. For organisations – particularly those in the public sector – the responsibilities of publishing accurate and timely updates have never been more urgent and critical. In this session, we’ll examine how organisations have had to adapt to new communications structures and cycles, while maintaining a whole of government approach. We’ll also look at what it means to rise to the challenge of leadership in authentic communications in a time of crisis:
• Addressing disinformation and narrative disruption
• How newsmaking has been affected by and changed due to this crisis
• Creating agile communications structures, geared to respond to rapid changes (digital solutions?)
• Striking the balance between humane and factual communication
• Leadership communication imperatives
