Event: Innovation & Communication: The Roundtables Breakfast

Communication is absolutely critical for businesses. It’s more than a press release, email blast or a phone call. It is being able to know what your customers want, produce the right products at the right time, listen to your customers and more.
On Tuesday, Sept, 9th 2008 from 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM at the The Graduate Center/CUNY: 365 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10016 attend Innovation & Communication: The Roundtables Breakfast.
You’ll learn:

  • How do you innovate communications?
  • What does innovation mean to communications professionals?
  • What environment is required for innovation?
  • What are examples and case studies from companies who are known for their innovation?
  • How do you measure and monitor innovation?
  • How does the communications function collaborate and integrate with product development and design functions?
  • How do you use social media to help innovate the communications function?

Instead of the typical keynotes, panels, and presentations, we will have a unique interactive format that maximizes knowledge sharing, collaboration and high level networking around topics of mutual interest related to innovation. Attendees will participate in 5 separate thirty minute moderated roundtable sessions throughout the breakfast. You will interact with 5 different groups of leaders and discuss 5 different topics related to innovation. Roundtables will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
