Talk - ‘Authentic communication in a post-truth environment’
2016 was an interesting year. The political world was continually shaken and the phrase ‘post-truth’ entered the Oxford English Dictionary. Join NGI Solutions to explore the challenges facing business in an environment where what’s presented as fact isn’t always. NGI Solutions will discuss how social media has impacted on the public’s ability to consume and process information examining how trust in brands has been affected. Finally, they’ll highlight some top-line tactics to help you communicate with stakeholders, customers and the general public in a meaningful and authentic way.
09:35 - 10:00 - Mingle! - Refill your mug and hit the floor again. The event closes at 10:00am
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
We'd prefer if the person who registered for the ticket turned up, but if that's not possible, please feel free to send a substitute.
